Newborough and Llanddwyn Beaches
Llanddwyn Beach toward Abermenai Point, Anglesey
We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in Anglesey, what fabulous walking and tremendous views!
We love Llanddwyn beach and the island, and have a couple of questions, if you don't mind please.
When we walked onto the main beach from the parking area we turned right towards the Island, we noticed that if you turn left you can take your doggie with you during the summer time, but not if you turn right.
If we were to go onto Newborough Beach (beyond the Island) would we be restricted from taking our spaniel there during the summer time too?
Also is there any way you can park a bit closer to Newborough Beach
Final question, are you allowed to spend time on the beaches on the island (ie for the day with picnic etc)?
Thank you so much,
I can well imagine that you had a fabulous time walking and spending time on Llanddwyn Beach
and can understand your desire to walk with your fine doggie to Llanddwyn Island, as it is enticingly close and one of Anglesey’s finest Nature Reserves.
The reason that a person’s best mate is not allowed to the right and onto Llanddwyn Island
is simply the wildlife, particularly nesting birds that nest on the ground very close to the designated paths.
Between May and September the birds are particularly vulnerable and there are very frequent signs along the Island’s paths reminding you to stay on the path.
I think that the reason for not being allowed on Newborough Beach (the other side of the Island) in Summer is the same.
The designated paths through Newborough Forest
bring you out right by the crossing to
That’s why you can’t take your dog on the beach at that point. In a sense, these parts of these beautiful Anglesey beaches are the greater exclusion zones.
There are no regulations to stop taking your dog for a walk through Newborough Forest any time of the year, however, in Summer you are not allowed to bring the beast out onto the beach.
Now, to your question about parking close to Newborough Beach. There is none. Either you take the Newborough Forest walk
or pootle along the beach.
It’s a 45 minute walk. Please try it and spend time listening to the ravens and the wind through the upper branches of the tall pines.
Sorry to confirm what you already understand. As you say, it is the same on a number of other Anglesey beaches during May and September. Click Here for Anglesey Beaches Dog Restrictions
Yes. A big YES! You can spend time on a number of small cove beaches on Llanddwyn Island
. These are pretty obvious. As you can see from one of the above images, it looks fabulous. It is generally soft shingle which sneaks through your toes.
Those beaches you cannot get to are clearly designated. People spend time sunbathing and fishing here. AND
, bring a picnic with you.
However, Keep An Eye On The Tide.
Check out my Tide Time Table page
for that info and leave plenty of margin of error.
Llanddwyn Island is a wonderful place to spend quality time. Have a look at my Newborough page
to see what else is available here.
I love it and glad that you do.
My very best wishes to you and give Doggie an affectionate scratch behind the ear from me.
