About
Overlooking the Irish Sea RSPB South Stack Cliffs is a heathland paradise waiting to be explored. Wind your way along the dramatic trails and take in the expansive views across Anglesey. There are great views of South Stack Lighthouse from Ellin's Tower. In spring and summer, marvel at the spectacular wildflower carpet covering the clifftops and seek out the rare spathulate fleawort, which grows nowhere else on earth! Carefully and quietly explore the edges of the heather and you might see lizards or even an adder. Visit Ellin's Tower for great views of the seabird city in spring and its puffins, guillemots and razorbills. Try to spot porpoise, dolphins and seals out to sea.

Filthy place, as a family we had to dodge dog muck everywhere, seen local people , who seem to think that their dogs can foul and leave their mess without picking it up, seems to be a poor place

Well what can I say this is an absolutely stunning area for walking & wildlife watching. We were staying at the foot of Holyhead Mountain, during our stay walked here at some point every day. So many footpaths including the Anglesey/Wales coastal path, climb Holyhead Mountain for 360 degree views and wonderful sunsets. Walked down to North Stack fog warning station along coast path & Breakwater country park. We must've walked miles up here, beware it's rough terrain in places.

We parked at the lower car park and walked to the tower along the coastal path on a slate path and then up to the RSPB centre up a fligth of wooden steps.
The views over the the lighthouse are breathtaking and we had the special pleasure of watching a local shepheard rounding up his flock of black sheep right in front of us.
The RSPB centre is superb and has matchless vistas and facilities - one criticism: no dogs so we sat outside in the blustery wind to have coffee and cake while others availed themselves of perfect indoor seating...

Visited on a sunny day and loved it despite absence of birds! Lots of walks. Great views of lighthouse and Snowdonia. Clean and well organised cafe with nice views. Don't miss the hut circle iron age village remains near the lower car park.

We parked in the small car park just down from the visitor centre and then had a nice (windy) walk across the headland until we had a birds eye view of the lighthouse. Very scenic location and easy walking, unless you decide to go down to the lighthouse and take on the numerous steps. Lovely location.

We arrived here having seen this spot on the telly recently - well worth the drive out. Great location particularly on a sunny day. We timed our arrival approx 5pm just as the centre was closing - car park a bit highly priced. Shop, cafe and toilets available with plenty of well positioned benches to sit and enjoy the views and the fresh sea air. Unfortunately the RSPB tower had closed.

Some great views and photographs to be taken here.

We.walked round as slight headland to suddenly come upon the view of the lighthouse from the centre.This was I’m sure the best approach to first sight of this beautifully situated lighthouse and made the experience.Later we parked above and were less impressed from that aspect although the ice creams from the cafe were good, A pleasant and undemanding walk but crowded when we visited

Beautiful views and nice footpaths. Lovely RSPB centre with good facilities.
The views are lovely and there is the opportunity to take a tour of the lighthouse.
There are 3 car parks and we parked in the main one.

We visited here to get the amazing views of the lighthouse. There is a car park, great cafe, shop and toilets here too. There is an outdoor picnic area and you can walk down to the viewpoint to look at the lighthouse. The views are amazing. You can buy tickets here for the lighthouse tour, however this does involve a lot of climbing down steep steps at the cliff edge so it is not for everyone. We spent an hour here and then went on to the Breakwater Country Park, which made a great excursion overall.
