- Family site facing a wide run of beach
- Launch your own boat from the beach and store on site for free
- Excellently-kept facilities including café and bar
It’s sand and sea as far as the eye can see in the sinuous sweep of Luce Bay, and this friendly, family-run site faces right onto the huge, unspoiled beach. It will literally take you sixty seconds to stroll down there and relish the sensation of the golden crumbly stuff sliding silkily through your toes. The view in the other direction is not to be sniffed at either, as the emerald Galloway Hills undulate into the distance.
Guests at Sands of Luce Holiday Park can get their chops round an enormous breakfast or some of the homemade sarnies and cakes in the park’s café, or hunker down and work their way through an array of local whiskeys in the Lighthouse Bar, where there are always plenty of amiable regulars offering up fishing advice.
The award-winning facilities also include a playground and two games rooms for children, although they’ll probably be too busy making sandcastles, watching the boats launch from the beach, or trying out some wakeboarding and kitesurfing...
During Easter, July and August expect plenty to do on site with a free wild food beach forage and RSPB beach safaris once a week, along with a holiday programme of activity days like archery, beach kayaking, blokarts, paddle board, kite buggies and sea fishing available for a small fee.
Guests' boats can be launched from the beach and stored in the new secured boat yard at no extra charge.
Open from 01/03/2018 to 31/10/2018

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

NB: Sands of Luce Holiday Park is about 7 miles out from the town of Stranraer.
The wide open spaces, jagged cliffs and river inlets surrounding Luce Bay make for great birdwatching and wildlife spotting, as well as rambling and pedalling (and there are plenty of charismatic watering holes en route). Naturally, it’s fertile fishing, golfing and horse riding territory too.
Dotted with pretty fishing villages, this stretch of Galloway coast has an unusually mild micro-climate; there are a number of idyllic public gardens here, such as Logan Botanic Garden, which is filled with colourful blooms, palm trees and exotic southern hemisphere plants.
You can also visit the lighthouse at the Mull of Galloway, which is the most southerly point in Scotland, to sound out the mother of all foghorns and enjoy views all the way to Ireland.
Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
