Sandwick ( "Sandy Bay") is a township in the Shetland Islands, situated 13 miles south of Lerwick in the South Mainland. It comprises a number of distinct settlements in very close proximity to each other, each remaining distinct through being separated by agricultural land. These settlements within Sandwick include Old Sandwick (often just called "Sandwick" or "San'ick"), Lebitton, Broonies' Taing, Stove, Swinister and Hoswick - the latter of which is almost a village in its own right and is often considered distinct from Sandwick.

Sandwick is an inhabited place located on Mainland.
