Newborough and Ynys Llanddwyn
Newborough and Ynys Llandwyn on a blue sky day; it was perfect. Secluded, wind-protected coves as the tide retreated. Rocks to scramble over with the family geologist pointing out balloons of pillow lava and other formations. A large, grey seal patrolling its territory. Wild flowers galore and especially around St Dwynwen's Church. I'd been impressed with the flowers in early May and expected mid July to be a let down, but it was anything but.
The car park was busy but there was so much space on the beach. Well worth the £4 parking fee and free if you arrive very early or after the attendant knocks off.
