Evie Sands Beach

The Sands of Evie is a sandy beach within Aikerness Bay, protected by the Point of Hellia headland. The beach is a sheltered, shallow shelving sandy beach, which is large at low tide. When the tide comes in provides excellent shallow water to play in.

The beach overlooks the small island of Eynhallow and Rousay across Eynhallow Sound.

Small car parks either side of the beach, toilets at the Western car park.
