Llanddona is a village and community noted for its beach in the Welsh county of Anglesey. Located between Benllech and Beaumaris, it is popular as a holiday destination, particularly for families. The beach is a good size without being bleakly huge, shelves at a decent but not alarming rate and has an abundance of clean yellow sand. Llanddona has no shops; however, it has a riding school and a public house. At the 2001 census it had a population of 639, increasing to 691 at the 2011 census.
Llanddona transmitting station is located approximately one mile to the north east of the village. The station is the main broadcasting site for television and radio in north Wales.
St Dona's Church, Llanddona, dates from 610, although the present building was erected in 1873.
