It is one of the most important red squirrel conservation sites in the United Kingdom. It appears increasingly likely that there are now only 500 red squirrels in Wales and numbers are continuing to decline.
The whole area was mainly shifting sand dunes prior to 1947 when afforestation began. During the late seventies and eighties there were concerns that the water levels within the forest and within neighbouring warren were falling, with the result that winter flooding was not to the same depth and that dune slack pools were drying out sooner.
Proposals were put forward in 2004 to remove large parts of the forest. The local community and conservation groups objected and in 2008 a public consultation was held into the future management of the Newborough woodland.
Newborough Forest is a major tourist attraction, with over 319,000 people visiting the forest in 2015.

Lovely place best of both worlds beach and forest. Lots of different trails to choose from different ability levels. Dogs loved it. Managed to see a red squirrel but unfortunately wasn’t quick enough to photograph it. Definitely worth a visit and looking forward to revisiting as soon as I can.
One of our favourite beaches. Plenty of parking, toilets, water bottle/ dog bowl water taps and usually icecream van present. Extensive area of clean beach, ( check tide times) and many footpaths through Newborough Warren. We visited early May so quiet, I'd imagine very popular in school hols. Pay with card on exit.
