The image top is of the Car Park for the Coral Beach. The walk from the Car Park to the Beach is under two miles out, about a 25 minute walk.

The Car Park can be busy through the day in summer, evenings may not be as busy.

The path runs over a small hill from where you get your first view of the Beach.

At the north end of the Beach is a rocky hill known as the Ghrobain, with great views over the Beach, showing just how clear the sea is in this area.

North of the rocky hill is a scenic headland, well worth walking out too, only about half of a mile from the beach.

There is a small Island about 150 yards offshore from the Beach named Lampay. Very low tides reveal a coral causeway that allows access to the Island.

The road between Coral Beach and Sligachan is one of the most scenic on Skye.
