Llanddwyn Beach looking toward Llanddwyn Island


Like your website with lots of information. I have a question about access to Llanddwyn Island very early in the morning. We believe there is a toll gate as you come into Newborough Forest prior to parking near the beach.

I am a landscape and wildlife photographer, weather permitting I would need to get onto the island before 8-30 am to get the best light condition. This means leaving the hotel early and parking up in the forest around 7-30 am.

Is there a restriction on access time through the toll gate say 7-20am.

Hi, there is a small car park directly opposite the island. I walked down there yesterday and noticed there were a couple of vans With people bbq Ing and two cars parked there, one was a young couple with a baby.
How do you get to this car park please?

It would also be wise to check the tide times and heights as the Island can be cut off for a couple of hours by the highest tides

Morning Access to Llanddwyn Car Park
by: William

Dear George

Thank you for your kind words about Anglesey Hidden Gem and I hope you have found information of value here.

I have made an enquiry about access down to the car park and can confirm that you can access the carpark early in the morning as you wish. I was in touch with Natural Resources Wales.

The reason for the barrier, in addition to raising a bit of cash, is also a means of controlling access in emergencies and, in general practice, to restrict the number of cars travelling down.

The car park is larger than it used to be, but Natural Resources Wales (used to be Forestry Commission and Environment Agency) still restricted access controls the pressure on the beach and dunes.

The only item that is restricted by time in the morning is the opening of the toilets down in the car park. If you're before that time then you may have to do what the bears do.

There is of course a second route that involves a little bit of a hike but gets you about 250m from the beach entrance. Have a look at my Abermenai Walk on

That route will give you a place to Park and a twenty minute walk to the beach. Then right turn and onto Llanddwyn Beach.

The ice-cream van and burger bar should be there by the time you're back. Highly recommended.

But there is no problem getting down to the Carpark.

I hope this information is what you want.

Best wishes and I hope you have a fabulous day on Llanddwyn Island.
