“Fabulous changes”

Newborough Warren & Ynys Llanddwyn

Attraction details
Reviewed May 5, 2013

This beautiful area of Anglesey has been revamped with style! A new car park and toilet block, picnic and barbecue areas, a board walk with a picnic area overlooking spectacular views of the Menai Straits and Snowdonia. The new Trim Trail and other marked walking, cycling and horse riding trails give everyone an opportunity to experience the great outdoors in all it's majesty. There is something here for everyone. At the moment the car park is free but the usual parking charge is £3 and worth every penny.

We have been here so many times, and never tire of the place, it is pure natural beauty, from the warren car park at a guess i'd say i'ts probably a 3 mile round walk, you walk along the sand to the island then follow the path around the island, the views are breathtaking, there are ponies grazing in the middle of the island as you are on the top path, there is a lighthouse on each of the far corners, there is a harbour you walk across the top of the wall to reach the other lighthouse, i'd advise you take binochulars because the views across to the mainland are just amazing, if you are lucky the pilots cottages may be open, alough this does not seem to happen very often and we visit a few times a year, we have been in them and if they are open please go in and see the display inside, when returning off the island take the right hand path, not the centre path, this will take you round the edge of the island and if you are lucky you may see seals, from this path, it' really is a truly wonderfull day out , a hidden gem, worth the effort to get there

Visited this beach after seeing recommendations on here.

From Newborough village we drove through around a mile or so of tree to reach the beach. The parking and toilet facilities were excellent if your planning on spending the day here. There were also some excellent BBQ and picnic facilities.

The Beach is an awesome sight you have to see to believe, we walked our dog along it (restrictions on dogs at peak season) you have views of the mountains across the strait and the back drop of the forest behind you. We walked along the beach and back through the forest. There look to be a good few trails through the forest (not sure if you can take mountain bikes)

Have to say this was by far our best walk with the dog on Anglsey because the stunning views.

We will return in a few years when our young family is a little older for a full fun day out here!

fabulous sandy beach with dunes for the kids to play in. A leisurely stroll to the island delivered shell covered coves with stunning views. I can't think of a better beach anywhere.

Although the beautifully surfaced toll road running through Newborough Forest was closed due to a new car park being built at the end, we decided to walk the several miles down to the beach. This was not that easy once we reached the bottom as we had to scrabble over some quite high dunes to reach the beach. However, it was well worth it.
This is simply one of the most stunningly beautiful places I have ever visited. Miles of golden sand, backed with a forest of pine trees and fringed with lovely turquoise blue sea.
The island of Llanddwyn is to the right of the beach and holds the ruins of a chapel dedicated to the Welsh patron saint of lovers. There is also a lighthouse, celtic cross and several cottages which were being renovated into holiday homes.
The island has several deserted beaches which were so beautiful they took our breath away, whilst you were spoilt at what to look at first, Snowdonia fringed with cloud in the distance, the birds of prey circling over the forest or the wild ponies crazing on the long island grass.
The only disappointing note was that there are no facilities at all, so we had to curtail our visit somewhat. Otherwise we would happily have spent the day here. Or several days.
I do hope that when the car park is completed that the beach doesn't give in to mass commercialism as it would break my heart to return here to see icecream kiosks, a sea of coloured windbreakers and a banana boat circling the bay.
Beautiful, stunning and unspoilt. Go.
