Go West – the furthest point of the forest

The westerly edge of Newborough Forest is the least visited, because it is the furthest from anywhere. From any of the car parks, or the village, it is about (or at least) a 2.5 mile walk. If you like nature and open views, it’s worth it.

This is where one of the trails, the one from the Malltraeth car park, emerges from the forest

and looking the other way, across the salt marsh and the dunes. You can get across the marsh and dunes and onto the sands of Malltraeth Bay.

    Also the place to see Orpine (sedum telephium) and the Tamarisk (tamarix gallica). Seeds from the crab apples here have been sent to the East Malling Research Institute. With more breeze than the rest of the forest, a good place for lunch.
