Located at the far end of Newborough Beach, you’ll find Llanddwyn Island (Ynys Llanddwyn); a truly magical place and one of Wales’ most beautiful places to visit. The island is a small headland jutting out into the sea and only technically becomes an “island” at high tide. A stunning spot in all seasons.
Ynys Llanddwyn is home to a number of wild horses, some nervous, some friendly, all gorgeous.
The island is named after St Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers and the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine. Legend has it that St Dwynwen fell in love with a young man named Maelon, but her father wished her to marry another.
St Dwynwen dreamed of a potion to release her of this unhappy love affair. However, the potion turned Maelon into ice. St Dwynwen went on to make three wishes: 1) for Maelon to be revied, 2) for all true lovers to find happiness and 3) that she would never again wish to be married. St Dwynwen then retreated to the Llanddwyn Island, where she lived the rest of her life in solitude.
