As well as spending the afternoon at the beach, other local attractions include Hermit's Cave, golfing, and fishing.

There are plenty of nearby accommodation options nearby including campsites, caravans, and hostels.

The small beach is situated three miles away from Lochinver, where visitors will find amenities like cafes, shops, and restaurants.

Meanwhile, Lucky Bay in Australia has been crowned the best beach in the world.

The beach was popular with judges because of one unusual feature – it's home to a mob of kangaroos.

The experts added: "Lucky Bay has some of the most pristine snow-white sand and incredible turquoise water you will ever see."

Beaches in Australia dominated the top spots world, but two places in Europe also made it into the top ten.

Coming in 8th place, Reynisfjara Beach in Iceland was the first European beach on the list.

Its "rugged and dramatic allure" was noted by the judges.

They said: "Unlike traditional beaches with their bright colors, Reynisfjara Beach showcases a different kind of beauty that you cannot afford to miss experiencing at least once in your lifetime.

"The black sand, sea stacks, glaciers, and columnar basalts are just a few components that make this place seem like another world altogether."

But if you're after a more traditional beach in Europe for the summer holidays, then Navagio Beach in Zante might just be perfect.

Known as Shipwreck Beach, this beach is consistently ranked as one of the world's best beaches.

While the shipwreck from 1983 is the centerpiece of the beach, there's also a viewpoint and other stunning beaches nearby.

EasyJet operates direct flights to Zante, with prices starting from £70.
