Newborough Beach

About Newborough Beach

Newborough Forest

Today the forest is a great place to relax in, with waymarked trails to explore and wildlife to discover. It's also still a working forest, so areas may be closed for your safety when timber is removed. You can also get into the forest from the Malltraeth car park on the A4080, or why not visit Llyn Parc Mawr and its bird-rich lake? Don't forget to visit Llys Rhosyr, one of the courts of the Princes of Gwynedd, on the way back to Newborough village just before the church.

Newborough Warren

Turn left on the beach, or take the sheltered walk south through the forest, to explore Newborough Warren, one of the finest dune landscapes in Wales. There are waymarked trails alongside the forest boundary and across the dunes to the Menai Strait. Enjoy the wildflowers and sound of skylarks in summer or just the wide open spaces and spectacular views any time.

 Turn right along the beach, or take the sheltered forest track north, to explore Ynys Llanddwyn (Llanddwyn Island) with its rich history, including the folk tale of St Dwynwen, patron saint of lovers (the Welsh St. Valentine). You can also get to Newborough Warren from the Llyn Rhos Ddu (with bird-hide and lake) and Braint car parks. The dunes, beach and Ynys Llanddwyn are all part of a National Nature Reserve (which some sheep, cattle and ponies help to look after.
