About

A truly stunning beach and was voted in 2021 as no. 3 in Lonely Planet's Top 20 Best beaches in Europe! It is so stunning that back in 2009, the Thai Tourist Board mistakenly used the image to promote Kai Bae Beach  - an easy mistake to make given the turquoise sea and white sandy beach!

This beach has 3 miles of white sand, made up from broken shells. The machair runs parallel to the beach and is ideal for walking. It is a haven for wildlife, such as the elusive corncrake and in the summer months the machair is peppered with an assorted variety of wildflowers, including rare orchids.
