“Great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Lovely walk on the cliff tops and the views out to sea are stunning. The sea is crystal clear and if you are interested in birdwatching, take your binoculars !!

“Beautiful views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Amazing views, loads of seabirds and wildlife to spot from Ellin's Tower (RSPB run). Lovely walks along the cliffs and great cafe for delicious tea and cake afterwards! I always visit here when I'm in Anglesey.

“Excellent Food and Stunning Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We live local to southstack and have visited on numerous occasions. The food has always been of a high standard and there home made cakes are excellent. I would highly recommend the cafe for lunch and then you can walk it off my visiting that lighthouse itself down all the steps. The guide at the bottom is very informative but you do need a head for heights if you want to visit the lantern.

“spectacular fete of engineering”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

On a nice day this is a great pace to visit
not only is there the light house but also an opportunity to observe birds nesting on the cliffs
there are also prehistoric remains of a vllage to walk around
so much of interest to the outdoor types
