Walk to the lighthouse

We walked up to the lighthouse and did the tour to the top- worth going for a bit of history and the guide was very nice and knowledgeable. Over 1000 steps there and back!

This is a great place to visit on a nice day. You can see for miles and the sea is a beautiful bluey/green colour. The steps to the lighthouse are steep so you need to be sure footed and prepared to climb back up again! From the top of the lighthouse you can see for miles and the guide was... More

Staff helpful. Amazing experience. Stunning location. An absolute must if in North Wales. Even if you don't want to pay to go into the actual lighthouse this is still an amazing experience.

Awesome place to visit, if you like walking then this place is a must, there are so many steps when you finally reach the lighthouse then you can experience the awesome views from the top, also if you lucky enough you might get to see the porpoises too

After a long walk form Holyhead I finally reached this place, after a visit to Ellin's Tower. There are a lot of steps to reach, but it is not that difficult. Entrance for student 4£, children 3£, adult 5,5£. You can enjoy the story of the lighthouse, very well-done, and then go upstairs and enjoy the view from the top.... More

Hiked thru this area when walking the Isle of Anglesey Coastal Path. Took an amazing amount of photos from Holyhead to Trearddur Bay. The South Stack Lighthouse was of my highlights along with the sunset at Trearddur Bay.

Enjoyed the views of the coast & the huge number of birds, including puffins, on the cliffs. There is a nice little display of the lighthouse history & if you don’t mind spiral staircases, a visit up to the lamp room at the top. One of the wardens was extremely affable & knowledgeable about the lighthouse, a really nice guy... More
