The beaches on the west side of Berneray are famed for their perfection and images of them are framed by photographers and artists. They are a relatively short walk across or around from the hostel. Listen to the sound of the waves as recorded by DaveHillWriter on YouTube or reflect on the paintings of Ann Cummings. You should be transported to an idyllic land and shore. This happened to an advertising agent who mistakenly presented a photograph of Berneray to promote Kai Bae Beach, Thailand. An understandable mistake, metaphorically, which would become evident, literally, when all-year-around temperatures are considered!
