South Stack Cliffs

2/8 Spot dolphins from a tower

South Stack Cliffs RSPB reserve is a nature reserve on Holy Island, on the North West coast of Wales. Up on the cliffs you will enjoy a close-up view onto a wonderful cliff-side nesting colony 300 feet above the Irish Sea. The first floor of Ellins Tower has a plate-glass platform that offers beautiful views to South Stack lighthouse and if you're fortunate enough to be there on a day with clear skys you will get views of up to 60 miles to Ireland!

Binoculars and telescopes are provided so you and the family will be able to watch guillemots, razorbills and puffins all raising their young, while live television pictures give you an even closer view of the nests! Families can also enjoy some wildsquare bingo sheets to help discover nature on the reserve. Spring and summer bathe the heathland with incredible vibrant colours. If you look closely you may see a basking adder, while out to sea you might be able to catch a glimpse of some porpoises and dolphins.

When: Visitor Centre (With shop and cafe): 10am – 5pm. Ellins Tower Seabird Centre: 10am – 5pm
