  • South Bay Beach is a large sandy bay with white sand.

    The semi-feral flock of North Ronaldsay or Orkney sheep have evolved to live almost entirely on seaweed. They are confined to the shoreline by a 1.8 m (6 ft) tall drystane dyke, which completely encircles the island, forcing the sheep to stay on the shoreline.

    We have no current information on dog restrictions for South Bay Beach.

    Why not check other beaches nearby as we have one beach around North Ronaldsay, 18 beaches in Orkney Islands, or check our list of Orkney Islands Dog Friendly Beaches.
