RSPB South Stack

Attraction in Anglesey

RSPB South StackRSPB South Stack

Dramatically located within Anglesey’s Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, RSPB South Stack is the place to experience breathtaking landscape, fascinating history, and wonderful spectrum of wildlife and marine life.
Stroll along the trails and you’ll see the iconic South Stack lighthouse, huge seabird cities crammed onto the sheer cliffs, and heathland of heather, gorse and wildflowers.
Look out for the charismatic choughs - on windy days their acrobatic flying is a fascinating sight, whilst peregrine falcons, the world’s fastest bird, can be seen dropping prey in mid-air for their young to try and catch.
Get an even closer view of the spectacular seabird city at Ellin’s Tower where up to 10,000 seabirds make their home. You’ll be able to watch puffins, razorbills and guillemots raising their young and also spot porpoises, dolphins and seals from viewing points and on live cameras.
Young ones will love our play area. You can scramble your way to the top of the climbing frame; try to keep a steady balance on the log stumps; hop onto the see-saw then jump onto our basket swing which arguably has one of the best views in Wales. You can also explore our nature garden which is home to hedgehogs, frogs, insects and birds - as well as some other fascinating creatures that inhabit our pond.

Author's Review

Being perched on the top of a huge cliff makes RSPB South Stack quite a unique nature reserve. A reserve where it would not be strange to come across an adder taking a well earned sunbathing break, a glimpse of mischievous dolphins enjoying the unspoilt coastline, and that’s before we have even started talking about the huge range of birds that south stack has visiting its reserve on a regular basis. The RSPB relies hugely on donations at this particular site, and no matter how small, every penny is gratefully received. All in all I had a wonderful time here at South Stack, and this reserve certainly fits in with our ‘value for money being set against visitor experience’ criteria. Finally the staff were all so friendly, which just adds to the enjoyment of visiting this great site!
