Chuffs and the falcons were the main reason for the visit and we had excellent views of the young falcon. After 8 hours of watching, we just missed its first flight as we turned to talk to someone. The lighthouse is a tough walk to reach it and it is 400 steps down a very steep hill. The staff and... More

The RSPB visitor centre has ample parking, gift shop and a restaurant for light refreshments. A view point is located in stunning cliff top scenery providing views of the vast numbers of sea birds on the adjacent cliffs. Good views of puffins at their nesting burrows, cough and a peregrine eyrie with parent and chick were particular highlights. A visit... More

My partner and I visited on a very warm sunny Saturday in May. Being a normal holiday changeover day, fortunately there were not too many people which made a lot of difference to the stunning photos we were able to take. The staff at the Tower were very helpful, with binoculars and telescopes on hand to point out the sightings... More

Visited South Stack RSPB Reserve over the spring Bank Holiday and it was very popular and busy so the car parks were rather full. Although the weather was not spectacular but the views and birds made up for that. This is one of our favourite places to visit and we were treated to a very special sighting of a Peregrine... More

Well worth a visit if you enjoy stunning scenery - as I have mobility problems, the pathway down to the lighthouse was very difficult for me, but worth the effort if you are up to it.

Visited last Saturday, first to the RSPB viewing area where we spoke to the ranger who was very helpful and informative especially in directing us to the best spot to see the peregrine nest. Then we spent a great 4 hours just wandering along the cliff edge and down the steps to the lighthouse. We saw puffins (2), choughs, razorbills,... More

A planned visit to see the nesting Birds. Great to see a Nesting Peregrine Falcon feeding her chick. Also very pleased to see a small number of Puffins amongst hundreds of Gannets & Gulls Excellent coastal Paths and a very good onsite café. Views out to sea are stunning well worth a visit.

As a bird watching person and a really true trekking/walking guy, I can only mention that it was an absolute pleasure to visit this RSPB Reserve. Beautiful views and really good paths all around the cliffs makes an unforgettable emotions once visited.
