Walk 7 - Newborough Forest & Llandwyn Bay walking and hiking route


Walk Instructions

This is an action-packed outing, comprising forest trails, sandy beaches and a whole host of possible wildlife sightings. Something for all tastes and, level terrain throughout.

Directions: A4080 from Llanfair Pwllgwyngyll

(longer than most HPB walks but easy walking)

Start/car parking - Layby or car park at south end of Malltraeth, near the bridge: Grid Ref 407687 Postcode for Malltraeth village: LL62 5AS

1. Walk over the bridge and turn right along the embankment dividing the pools, and the extensive area of salt marsh – habitat for hundreds of wading birds etc.

2. Pass through a forest car park walking close to the main road, just follow the path which bends to the right on to a track going into Newborough Forest and begin a four mile journey towards the promontory known as Llanddwyn Island.

3. Follow a wide and sometimes twisting vehicle track throughout. Ignore all turn offs, including a rather ambiguous post 16. Arriving at post 6 turn right and head seawards through a gap in the trees.

4. At the beach turn left, between rocks, and then right, to visit the promontory of Llanddwyn Island (or Lover’s Island in English) (be aware of incoming tides). Aim for the information board to pick up the main path. Witness the tall cross, ruins, the white tower and spectacular views of the mountains. There are two paths reaching the end of the promontory which make an ideal and interesting circular walk.

5. Returning to the beach entry point, the walk route continues (eastwards), along the exquisite beach of Llanddwyn Bay.

6. Stroll along the beach until reaching a board walk. Turn left here to a car park with toilets. Follow the path adjacent to the exit road. At Cwningar car park turn left, continue on the track through a metal gate. At a T junction (post 23) turn right, continuing on this main track, ignoring all side tracks. Straight on at cross paths at post 18.

7. Turn right at post 16, joining the outward route.

Choice of return route:

Either: Continue on the track, through the car park and retrace earlier steps along the embankment and back to Malltraeth.

Or: Continue on track to post 34 and turn left. Walk along a small path, crossing several board walks (the path may be overgrown). At a post with AE on it, next to a stile, turn right and reach the car park after about 50 yds. Walk through the car park and retrace earlier steps along the embankment and back to Malltraeth.


Start/car parking: Public Car Park in Newborough Forest, Grid Ref 405634, Post code: LL61 6SG

1. Leave the car park and head towards the sea. Turn right along the exquisite beach of Llanddwyn Bay. Head for rocky outcrop of Llanddwyn Island (Lover’s Island in English) (beware of incoming tides).

2. Look for the notice board explaining some of the history of this island. Walk ahead and explore. There are two main paths but both reach the end of the island and provide the basis for a circular walk. Lovely sandy coves, remains of a church, pilot cottages, a large cross and a lighthouse can be seen. Across the sea to the south the grand panorama of Snowdonia just adds the final touches to this walk.

3. The walk back is the same as the outward journey, unless you wish to explore the large Newborough Forest.
