Such a beautiful place the beach was stunning very clean and sandy. Decent car park and toilets available also. Lots of different walks through the woods or out on the beach to the light house. Will cost you £4.00 to get on though !!!!

We had a cool, clear sunny day. The walk from the car park to llanddwyn island was awesome. The scenery is fabulous. We had the added extra of snow capped mountains to n the distance. The place is beautifully maintained and I, who hates paying for parking, do not begrudge the £4 fee.

An absolutely beautiful beach to visit and surrounding forest was amazing. So much to do, but didn't have enough time. Will definitely be visiting again

We parked at the beach car park,well worth the £4 parking fee for clean toilets,somewhere for an ice cream and easy access to the beach. Walked along the beach to the island. We walked up the steps and did the coastal walk round. We had a lovely time meandering along. This island is magical. While I was there,I didn't want... More

I visited Ynys Llandwyn twice this year. The first time, in July, it was oppressively hot (yes, in Wales) and the walk to the island sapped my energy. October was much better. It was a fine day and the way along the beach and across to the island was easy. The Snowdonia mountains and Llyn hills make a scenic backdrop.

We spent a lovely day at Newborough today. We had a leisurely hour walking through pine woodland and picnicking - no squirrels in sight sadly! Then we walked up the (windy) beach to Ynys Llanddwyn collecting shells along the way. Everyone tired & happy for £4 (car park fee)

Beautiful beach, closed to dogs during prime holiday season although there are places to walk the dogs outside the closed season. Lovely wooded walks if it is cool. Large car parking although you will be charged £4 per day.

I was at Newborough Warren for an orienteering training day, but captivated by the pine woods on dunes leading down to a wide but windswept sandy beach. It's a great place for quiet walks, too, though I didn't see any of the famous red squirrels. Yolu can look across to Snowdonia (often hidden under clouds) or out across the low... More
