Llanddwyn Island (Ynys Llanddwyn) is located on the far end of the impresive Newborough Beach and is the perfect spot for a family picnic to admire the impressive coast. Families can enjoy impressive views out towards Snowdonia and the Lleyn Peninsula. Tŵr Mawr lighthouse makes provides excellent photo opportunities and families can enjoy watching the dramatic waves crash below. It is 35ft high and was built in 1873. The likelihood is that this lighthouse was once built as a windmill.
While you are here, why not explore the ruins of St. Dwynwen’s Church? You may see some resident ponies and there are some rocky coves and other small islands to explore.
Llanddwyn is not quite an island. It remains attached to the mainland until the high tides come in (something to be mindful of).
Newborough itself consists of a woodland nature reserve and sand dunes for families to explore. For more information about the beach, please see the beach’s listing card.
Additional information: *It does get a tad windy in Winter months. *When parking at Newborough beach, the walk to the lighthouse is approximately a mile and a half. *Some restrictions may apply for dog owners at select times. Please contact the council for further guidance.
