General

  • 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.

Please note

The activities are charged at £10 per person for the day.

The wild food beach forage and RSPB beach safari run once a week during Easter, July and August.

Great beach 23/09/2018

  • Liked: 

    Liked the camp , pitch was good , long walks on the amazing beach full of shells could walk for miles , been near to village and a well stocked shop. Friendly wardens checked we were okay when strong winds due. Great television signal , great internet.

    Disliked: 

    Menu and prices at the clubhouse expensive so did not try the pizzas , clubhouse not dog friendly, showers were lukewarm water with an annoying short button time.mens toilets had a blocked sink for 3 days and a leaking soap dispenser all over the surfaces. Difficult to go out with no transport. Some one let their dog poop on our site but that's just some people for you.

  • Liked: 

    Great views very spacious pitches toilet/shower facilities very clean and modern plenty hot water.
    great access to beach area very clean beach dog walkers take pride on keeping it clean.
    Bar/restaurant area great albeit it doesn't take dogs and this is a dog friendly site should advertise that dogs are not welcome in this area of site which is disappointing as the village of sandhead is very quiet and not much doing.
    There is a hotel/bar/restaurant in the village which we would have gone into and eaten if we had known no dogs allowed in site bar/restaurant.

    Disliked: 

    Manager bar could at least let us have our drinks that we paid for and was already poured before offering a refund this would have been more respectful to us as customers as there is no notice that dogs are not welcome.
    apart from this we would return but only for coupe of days as not enough to be getting on with to stay longer

Local attractions

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.

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
