Ynys Llanddwyn is not truly an island because at low tide you are able to walk onto it quite easily off the end of Llanddwyn beach. Llanddwyn beach is located beyond Niwbwch forest at the south western tip of Ynys Mon. I've been onto the island several times and been a bit disappointed, something was lacking. On this trip the sea was wild and I was spoilt for choice, but having explored the island I found a little beach of white sand beneath the light house. There twenty metres or so was a sinister black reef with the wild sea crashing over it, and beyond in the distance was the hills of Yr Eifl.
