Newborough Forest & Llanddwyn Island
Distance: 9.5 miles (15km)
Ascent: 116 metres
Start/finish: Llyn Rhos Ddu car park, LL61 6RS
From the start follow the Wales Coast Path south-west to the beach at LLanddwyn Bay. Turn R and follow the beach around the lighthouse at the end of Llanddwyn Island (3.6 miles/5.8km). At very high tide this becomes an actual island so take care and check tide times before running out to the lighthouse. Continue on the coast path back along the island and then L across the sand to the edge of Newborough Forest. Follow the path around the forest to the R and up the Afon Cefni estuary to a track junction at SH 408660 (7.3 miles/11.7km). Turn R off the coast path heading south-east through the forest to the coast path on the far side. Turn L onto this and follow the outbound path north-east back to the start.
