Tresta Beach

Tresta is the main beach on the small island of Fetlar in The Sheltlands. A long white sandy beach with cliffs at its south end. The beach is an ideal family beach as it sits within a calm shallow cove.

Behind the beach is Papil Water, a fresh water loch which is popular for seasonal trout fishing.

Tresta Beach has been awarded a regional Seaside Award.
