St. Ninians Beach is a long causeway of nice sand linking the little island of St. Ninians to Shetland. It is a large tombolo (a sedimentation landform in which an island is attached to the mainland by a narrow piece of land). The beach can be easily accessed from Bigton, the closest township. It lies in a rural farming region, with an archaeological site. It is one of the most stunning beaches on the island, with great facilities. It is popular with watersports enthusiasts, such as surfers, swimmers and divers.
