Tresta beach

Fetlar's main beach, at Tresta, is one of only five in Shetland to receive a Seaside Award each year since 2008, something the community is very proud of.

It is a long white sand beach with stunning cliffs at its south end. This pretty, easy to access beach is in a calm shallow cove making it ideal for families. Just behind the beach is Papil Water, a freshwater loch which is available for seasonal trout fishing.

Please do not take vehicles beyond the parking area opposite the Kirk; the links area is fragile and easily damaged by vehicles driving over it. There is a footgate to give pedestrian access.
