Llanddona Beach

Llanddona Beach, Anglesey

When my family of three girls and one son were very young, we would all walk down to the beach every other day.


It was a trek but once we were down there it was the best place to be.

Then we had to think of the long walk home, up those steep hills. Now I know why I suffer from arthritis.

But it's a lovely beach and well worth a visit when we lived there.




Dear Susan

How fabulous it must have been to live near this brilliant beach as a child.

It has to be the scariest drive down to a beach on Anglesey. Each corner is a flippin' adventure. A bit like Russian Roulette, you don't know if the next corner's going to present a car and no parking place.

Llanddona's such a marvellous large, open beach. And if the fresh air didn't exhaust your children, then I'm certain they were like little exhausted lambs by the time they got back up the sttep hill and home.

Thank you for your message, Susan.

My best wishes to you,

Wil

Missing Angelsey!
by: Laura

Hi Wil

When living for 4 months on Anglesey, I decided one morning to veer off the main road from Beaumaris to Pentraeth and go the Landdona - or the town where Three Witches Washed Up On The Beach so the tale goes.

As I wound down the roads I came to Llanddona and saw a sign for traeth or beach.

Off I went,passing the sign that said 37% grade I think. I knew that Llanddonahad a beach and decided to venture to the shore.

The first trip down the winding narrow road was a bit scary, but glimpses of the beautiful sparkling sea beckoned. I wasn't sure if I would be able to turn around once I reached the sea or what would be waiting for me.

I also knew if I met oncoming traffic there would be a problem.

Oh! My Delight when I found that Llandona was at the eastern edge of Red Wharf Bay!

We walked here on our last day of Anglesey and wrote messages in the sand for the sea to take out to the world.

Anglesey lives in my heart each day.
