St Dwynwen's Church (Welsh: Eglwys Santes Dwynwen) is a ruined church on the island of Ynys Llanddwyn off the coast of the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales. Unusually for churches in that region it has a cruciform floorplan.
Llanddwyn Island (Welsh: Ynys Llanddwyn) is a small tidal island off the west coast of Anglesey, North Wales.
Llanddwyn's location near the western approach into the Menai Straits was one of maritime significance, particularly because of the proximity of the ports at Caernarfon, Bangor, and Felinheli. This significance is reflected in the row of pilot cottages on the island, where pilots who guided boats into the ports, and particularly Caernarfon, used to live.
