Hosta Beach (Traigh Stir, Traigh Bheireal)

Beautiful white sand beach stretching along the exposed western coast of this Hebridean island. The beach backs onto gently undulating sand dunes which are a haven for wild flowers including orchids.

Hosta beach is the island’s premiere surf spot, capable of holding huge swells which roll in from the North Atlantic.
