Shetland Beaches Among The Cleanest In Britain

by Alastair Hamilton -

Five of Shetland's beaches are featured in the latest version of the Good Beach Guide, published online by the Marine Conservation Society.

All five beaches are recommended for their excellent water quality. In Shetland's south mainland, the beaches at St Ninian's Isle and the West Voe at Sumburgh are highlighted. On the island of Yell, two recommended beaches are at West Sandwick and Breckon. The fifth beach is at Tresta on Fetlar.

Although these are the only Shetland beaches mentioned in the Good Beach Guide, the islands have many more, which isn't surprising given that the coastline extends to 1,697 miles. You can find a wider selection in our list of favourites.
