Surely one of the most beautiful beaches in Britain, Llanddwyn boasts a fabulous sandy beach and wonderful views of Snowdonia. Located on the south-western tip of Anglesey, the beach is back by amazing sand dunes and Newborough Forest. There’s easy access to the beach from the main car park but you will have to pay £5 to park unless you are member of the National Trust. There are toilet facilities and a shower in the car park and refreshments are available during the summer months. The refreshment van may also be there on bank holidays and other busier days throughout the year.
The entrance to the beach is at the bottom of the car park and marked by flags. When you step onto the beach, look to your right and you will see Llanddwyn Island, a headland featuring Tŵr Mawr Lighthouse which marks the entrance to the Menai Straits. It is worth taking the spectacular walk along the headland to the lighthouse if you have the time or can drag yourself away from the gorgeous beach.
Llandwyn is perfect for families and a lovely place to swim, stroll and walk the dog. The dunes are stunning and there are wonderful hiking trails in the woods to enjoy during your visit. The convenience of the car park and toilet facilities, not to mention the amazing views, mean that this beach does get busier than many others in the region but there is plenty of it, so it never feels crowded.
