Tresness Beach (Tres Ness)
Tresness on the Isle of Sanday is one of the most beautiful and unique beaches on the Orkney Islands. The beach is formed of a strip of white sand which tenuously connects a grassy headland to the rest of Sanday. To one side of the high dunes, the North Sea, to the other the Bay of Newark, a sheltered tidal lagoon.
If you walk towards the end of the headland and climb the dunes the view back along the coast is spectacular as the beach trails off into the distance.
Located at the southern tip of the peninsula is a prehistoric chamber tomb which was only discovered relatively recently. Don’t be surprised if you see archeologists digging around the site.
