Glorious long sandy beach with fabulous uplifting views to the Lleyn Peninsula.
Llanddwyn is a popular all-year-round destination, and was a Blue Flag winner in 2014. The headland, Llanddwyn Island, is named after the Welsh patron saint of love, Dwynwen (we celebrate St Dwynwen’s Day, the Welsh, St Valentine’s Day, on the 25th January). T
The beach is backed by marram grass tufted dunes - where you'll find wild orchids in the summer months - and Newborough’s wonderful conifer forest, so plenty to explore if you want a break from the sands. Great for swimming, kayaking or canoeing.
There is a fee to access the main beach car park but it does have public loos. Lovely boardwalk. Seasonal dog restrictions on the beach, but you’re free to walk with your pooch through the forest (the beach beyond Llanddwyn, accessible via the forest, is dog-friendly).
All our holiday cottages are hand-picked and places we'd happily stay on holiday ourselves.
