Sty Wick is a beautiful wide sandy bay located on the southern coastline of Sanday. The local ladies swimming group use this beach for sea swimming and it’s also popular with paddleboarders as it’s “usually” quite calm water.
How to get there:
From the B9069 follow the brown signs to Quoyness Chambered Cairn, this will take you along a unmade farm track along the edge of the Little Sea, park next to the picnic bench on your right (HY677 390). Take the footpath southeast over the dunes where this stunning beach will reveal itself in front of you.
Parking for around 6 cars
