Newborough Warren is an extensive sand dune system and includes the most southerly part of Anglesey at Abermenai Point. The warren is made up of active and fixed dunes and provides an important habitat for many rare plants and animals.
The area forms part of a National Nature Reserve (NNR) which encompasses Malltraeth Sands, the Cob Pool, Cefni Saltmarsh, Abermenai Point, Llanddwyn Island, Llanddwyn Bay and Penrhos Bay. Originally planted in 1947 to stop Newborough from being engulfed in sand, Newborough Forest is now an important amenity with its extensive network of forest tracks and paths.
Although not included in the NNR, the forest is still an important area for wildlife. Walking the paths you might catch a glimpse of a red squirrel or a crossbill, or hear the guttural call of ravens flying overhead as this was once home to the second largest raven roost in the world. Navigate south through or along the edge of the forest and you’re likely to emerge at the vast expanse of sandy beach that is Llanddwyn Bay. This location is made even more stunning by the backdrop of the Snowdonia mountain range and the Lleyn Peninsula to the south and Llanddwyn island to the north. Llanddwyn is a small tidal island at the north end of Traeth Llanddwyn. It is named after the church of Santes Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers, who reputedly lived there until AD 460. The remains of the church can still be found on the island.
