Uig Sands Beach

Uig Sands is a very large sandy beach with rock pools great for family exploring and sports. But beware this is a remote location.

This area is excellent for beach and coastal walks.

Good for kiting and windsurfing and buggies at low tide although sand can get soft. Kitesurfers learning find this a good spot as at high tide it is very shallow and flat due to the shallow gradient. At low tides you can get some waves.

Toilets, parking, camp by the beach.
