My wife and me visited here this week, stunning scenery you must see if visiting Anglessey. There is a cafe on this location, fairly priced food and drinks. There is access down to the lighthouse for a charge albeit down some 400+ steps.

Went to South Stack and the lighthouse was open. Well worth climbing all the steps just to go over onto the island and then climbing to the top of the lighthouse for some great views. Also interesting learning about the history of the lighthouse.

Took a trip here not knowing what to expect, and had a superb time. The views off the coast were spectacular. If you are interested in bird watching, there are many types of birds here. We decided to walk down the steps to get to the lighthouse, not sure how many there were but they were in the hundreds, so... More

Like everyone else, we thought the views were phenomenal. Our day was very clear and we took a lot of great pictures. It is a quick trip by taxi from the port, but we had to stop at the ATM to collect British pounds as the taxi would only accept cash. We had a quick meal in the RSPB cafe... More

very spectacular views and great for active outdoor things to do. I have to say not too good for those with fear for heights like me. I managed to walk all the amazing never ending steps to the lighthouse. I went a few steps up the lighthouse and couldn't imagine the heights and knew I would cause a scene. My... More

We visit south stack often as a family. The views are beautiful and the light house itself is well worth a visit. The only complaint I have is they will not allow dogs onto the lighthouse grounds.

I have visited South Stack a number of times and will continue to do so for as long as I can. The weather today was excellent, very different to the mainland. The RSPB cafe and staff are fantastic, kind, polite and very obliging. The food at the RSPB cafe is great. Reasonably priced and serves a range of snacks. There... More

Tried to visit Southstack lighthouse, arrived early morning but it was very misty though sunny in Llandudno where we were staying. Decided to give it a miss and tried again after lunch but again very misty so did not go down to the lighthouse in the end. Perhaps we will try again in mid summer as I understand this is... More

Have been here dozens of times as a child and always loved walking and playing and collecting black berries around the area. As an adult have returned many a time to walk and descend the steps to the lighthouse. It is a beautiful place and well worth a visit even if you can not descend the steps. The cafe is... More

You need to pay to walk to see a light house! I can understand paying to go inside and up, but £5.50 the look at it, sorry but no. Also you need to park and pay at the RSPB reserve (we didn't know this, and I guess with seeing several people walking and driving back and forth, that they didn't... More
