Attraction Information

At Llanddwyn Bay during the summer season they have trained wardens scanning the shore with binoculars or even riding jet-skis, but no formal lifeguard cover though the swimming is very safe.

Llandwyn Bay is a spectacular sweep of sand and has amazing views out across the mountains of the Lleyn Peninsula.

Access is signposted from the A4080 in Newborough and is through a Forestry England road operated by a toll barrier. There is huge parking and picnic area in the trees behind the beach. Llanddwyn Bay can get some surf and offers good windsurfing conditions.

The beach is generally safe but the currents can be strong near Abermenai Point so keep away.The beach itself curves around from SW facing in the middle to SSW at Abermenai point and also wraps around to face SE near Llanddwyn Island so surf and wind direction relative to the shore can change quite a bit along the beach so it could be worth a walk to get the optimum conditions.

The beach is also ideal for kite buggying and kite-surfing. Few facilities are available on the beach itself, just toilets, but most things are available in Newborough nearby.
