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 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.
“ Hope” is the thing with feathers - That perches in the Soul” Emily Dickinson.
