This is what I love about Wales. No matter where you go here, you will find something that is breath-taking, and South Stack is no exception. It was a beautifully sunny day when we visited, therefore we were very lucky to see the views at their finest. The 400 steps down to the lighthouse is definitely worth it,as the wildlife... More

This is an interesting place with great views. I just think they could incorporate some kids activities, interactive learning a bit more so the kids are amused whilst we admire the views and the birds.

Lighthouses always make an interesting visit but the approach and return from this one uis not for the faint hearted. There are well over 1200 steps to negotiate down the cliff to the lighthouse then up the lighthouse and back to the starting point. If you do not have an ossue with that is is brilliant. The wild birds are... More

Tickets can be... More

In my limited lighthouse viewing experience, this is an amazing sight. Especially great as the sun sets, and the skies show all their colours! Lots of steps if you fancy tiring the kids out.

Views, seabirds, cliff path walk . all fantastic with stunning scenery .You need to keep small children close by if visiting the RSPB castelan to see through all the binoculars( free) as there is no barrier to the edge of the cliff. No cost for us that day as we visited on a friday when the lighthouse is closed

In a very dramatic cliff side setting with magnificent views. Bird watchers paradise, the area is an RSPB reserve, hence no dogs allowed. Be prepared for the 500 or so steep steps down the cliff side.... and back up again! RSPB cafe nearby where you buy tickets. Note the cafe has a limited menu! You can also visit the RPSB's... More

Just to get the most important stuff out of the way, if you want to go in the lighthouse you need to have proper shoes on, anything with a open back like flip flops and they will not let you go up to the lighthouse. Also kids needs to be over 1.1m. I took my 5 year old, would not... More
