Walking in Anglesey
From the A55 continue over the bridge onto Anglesey and take your first left to Llanfairpwllgwyngyll (abbreviated) and then take the A4080 to Newborough via Brynsiencyn. When you arrive in Newborough village take the first left at the Crossroads (convenience store on the corner) along Church Street and follow signs for the beach. You will arrive at an automatic toll barrier which allows you access to the Newborough forest. Follow signs for the beach and car park. Now walk in a westerly direction along the forest path which runs parallel to the beach. When you arrive at the beach you will see Llanddwyn Island which can be cut off at high tide for about 1 hour. Continue towards the island and the information building which explains the history of the island and how the volcanic eruptions took place billions of years ago. You will be drawn to a collection of ruins and artefacts including a celtic cross, a ruined 16th century church and a modern Latin cross which commemorates St. Dwynwen who in the 5th Century was the patron saint of Welsh lovers.The views around the island take in rock spurs, quiet sandy coves and views of the Snowdonia mountains. You will also see many seabirds including Oyster Catchers, Cormorants and Shags so don't forget your binoculars. On a warm day the beach is one of the finest in the UK and has Blue Flag status. Dogs are not allowed on part of the beach from May to September (from the car park to Llanddwyn Island - including the island) - dogs can be let off the lead in the forest areas. This a beautiful walk and mostly fairly flat and one that should not be missed if you are visiting North Wales or Anglesey.
