Having grown up in Anglesey and visiting the reserve throughout my childhood finally crossing the bridge to the lighthouse was great. Our party aged 5 to 76 all managed the 1000+ steps with ease and were rewarded with stunning views including a pod of porpoises!

Visited on a very busy and very windy day. Quite difficult to park. Lenses set up at different heights for children & adults to better view the cliffs and the birdlife. Really informative and engaging RSPB volunteer. Thrilled to see birds of prey - not expecting that! Great walks along the coastal path but didn't go across to the lighthouse... More

A visit is an absolute must for any trip to Anglesey. There is a modest charge to go over onto the island that the Lighthouse is actually on, but its well worth it for the climb up the Lighthouse itself and the helpful and knowledgeable staff. Even if you only walk along the cliffs, its well worth it. The Cafe... More

The 400+ steps down to the lighthouse and then the steps up were well worth the views of the cliffs. You can even see dolphins. The lighthouse also contains some displays which are quite interesting.

On our recent visit to uk we decided to drive north to wales. We were staying in high wycombe and it was quite easy to hire a car with our middle eastern drivers lisence. The drive up to the lighthouse itself is breathtaking. There is a climb down the cliff to the lighthouse and back up of more than a... More

four hundred and somthing steps down to the lighthouse, but well worth the anticipated effort needed to go all the way back up again. A view to die for and a must on a trip to Anglesy

If you are energetic and like a challenge - just head for this lighthouse. The views are smashing and if you get a fair day there is nothing like it. We had blue skies and not too much wind on the day of our visit and it was terrific backdrop for this rather magnificent structure. The seas were also tranquil... More

Breathtaking views and an unforgettable experience visiting South Stack. We really enjoyed our visit and the challenge of climbing all those cliffside steps plus the picnic we had overlooking the sea at the visitors centre. Well worth a visit especially for older children.

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
