Brave the 400 or so steps down as it is well worth it. Great views, puffin spotting, (not that we saw any.. But other people did!) and very interesting tour of the lighthouse - amazing to actually see the light - and to hear the history. Welcome cup of tea in the cafe at the top!

Very pleased we went to visit this wonderful attraction, The weather was good on this day which helped. There are a lots of steps down the cliffs which is not bad as we stopped a lot to see the nesting birds on the cliffs including puffins and the beautiful small plants. You do have to get your tickets for the... More

The views were stunning and if I wasn't disabled I would have really enjoyed the walk up the big steps to the top of the cliff and then around the lighthouse. It was well worth the visit and next time I go there it will be to watch the birds nesting on the cliffs. We were lucky with the weather... More

A bit of a treck up from the town but well worth the visit. Id suggest getting the bus up as the steps from the car park down are at least 300. will be back

Well worth a visit - stunning views and only genuinely 7 minutes away from Holyhead. Worth going to, even if you don't have time to walk around, driving to see the cliffs makes for a good day out.

If you are on Anglesey then you are not far from South Stack. You need reasonable weather to enjoy the stunning views. If you decide to go down to the lighthouse itself, be aware that there is an awful lot of steps to go down & then climb up again. It will cost you just over £5 per adult to... More

Lovely area. Great views, great coastal walk. Worth a visit if you are in the area especially if you are bird watcher, climber or walker.

You need the weather for the views and the chance to see the birds on the cliffs, but the lighthouse would be a worthwhile experience even on a less sunny day. Our guide at the top of the lighthouse was knowledgeable and clearly enthusiastic about the place. Nice that he included some Cymraeg too!
