2 attempts to make it to the Coral beach...1st day just too wet, the next time was a success although still a bit damp, definitely cold and very very windy. Well worth the effort. Although the beach is a little ordinary it still has its own uniqueness and beauty. It's raw and wild and beautiful.

It took us an hour to walk to the beach, but it was flat, easy, and enjoyable. This area contrasts with the hills and heaths of the Isle and we were pleasantly surprised to discover such amazing beaches and ocean views on this rugged, rocky island!

About a 45 min walk with varied terrain to a beautiful bay and clear turquoise sea. Well worth the effort - mind out for the boggy bits and the stepping stones! Lovely little tumbledown croft near the shore - made me wonder who had such a lovely view - I'm sure they must have left with a heavy heart! There... More

Weather was good so decided to visit coral beach. Car park not very big and was quite full when we arrived which was mid to late afternoon. Took us about 45 minutes to walk but we stopped a few times to take in the scenery and of course take pictures. Beach is very unusual as it started out quite black,... More

Tranquility, one with nature, it's all here, in the air, on the beach, and scurrying along the ground. One of the most serene places on earth

We didn't arrive at the car park until around 2pm in late November on a bright sunny afternoon, no breeze at all. The rocky path to the beach was rocky, sloping and somewhat wet and even icy in places. Good sturdy waterproof shoes needed as parts of the walk is quite soft and there are a few streams to 'hop'...

Visited here during a trip in February. Picked up a couple of hitchhikers during our drive around the isle and mentioned that we were making the long drive down to this beach. It's a decent mile or so walk to the beach, and in suspect weather, it may be quite slippy underfoot. Beautiful clear water, lovely beach and some great... More

Short walk from the car park, rough ground in parts if you're thinking about push chairs or wheelchairs. We walked trough a shower then when we got there a stunning winter sun came out. Spent a lovely couple of hours just exploring and enjoying the beautiful beach, views and crystal clear water. Well worth it.

What a great place! The walk from the car park is just over a mile, but it's worth it. In cooler, wetter weather, wellies/hiking boots are a must as the path gets quite muddy. We went on a particularly windy day, so we were in warm layers with gloves and hats. The drive to the car park was in the... More
