Photo information

Tŵr Mawr Lighthouse is situated on the tidal island of Ynys Llanddwyn on Anglesey. The lighthouse marks the western entrance to the Menai strait. Visitors need to be careful they don’t get stranded on the island by high-tide!

It is quite a popular spot for landscape photographers. This is due to the beauty of the area – the mountains of Snowdonia can be seen in the distance – and also possibly due to the s-curve steps which lead the eye naturally up to the lighthouse. This makes for a pleasing composition.
