Unfortunately closed when we visited, but the locale was lovely, and we will definitely be back to see it in all its glory.

We decided to visit the lighthouse on a lovely warm day and glad that we did. The access is down a large number of concerete steps you need to be quite fit and agile especially uphill coming back! The views were spectacular you can see for miles. There is a lots of wildlife here with loads of birds nesting around... More

Incredible. The view is just incredible. The lighthouse was very nice and looked great on the island in the sea. Very picturesque. Couldn't recommend enough. Definitely worth a visit. The place itself is simple wonderful.

We visited on a very wet and windy day which made me quite nervous being around the cliffs although it was still fantastic. Would love to go inside the lighthouse when it's open. Whole area around South Stack is beautiful and worth seeing!!

Very good trip. Amazing view. It's possible to go walking from the Holyhead port but it could take all the day so if you want to visit other places in the same day you need a car.

Plenty of detailed reviews here to save me waxing on about this place. I would like to reaffirm that access here is limited for the unfit, and those with a mobility problem as access is by a large number of concrete steps. The area however is still worth a visit with a picnic as the sea, and coastal views are... More
