St Ninians Isle Beach (Shetland Islands)
This sandy beach links the Shetland mainland to St Ninians Isle.
The 500 metre stretch of sand is the UKs largest active tombolo – a deposition landform in which an island is attached to the mainland by a narrow piece of land such as a spit or bar.
It is well worth a look around St Ninians Isle as you have some great vies, a wide range of seabirds and some archaeological finds.
You have a car parking area next to the beach with picnic tables along with a cafe in nearby Bigton.
St Ninians Isle Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
