Ynys Llanddwyn

The start of our paddle around Anglesey was a bit grim; pouring rain and low cloud made packing and launching a bit of a chore. Nevertheless, four of us set off from Beaumaris on the Menai Strait, and sped down the Strait utilising the extremely strong tidal flows that characterise the area.

After leaving the Strait, we headed up the west coast of Anglesey. The first landmark we saw was Ynys Llanddwyn, a tidal island which is only detached from Anglesey on spring high tides. We had a few hours more paddling left in us, but landed to take a look around as we knew nothing about the place.

We didn’t launch again that day.
