Took my Grandchildren to South Stack last summer on a beautiful hot sunny day and we felt like we were on a Greek Island. The hundreds of steps down the stunning cliff face were a challenge but we all made it. The glorious deep blue sea adorned with Yachts and Sailing boats looked like a scene out of a film!... More

Visited with my family when staying in a cottage just down the road, the views are great and the information centre is worth a visit whilst there. There's some great runs around the coast and a fun 200ish steps down to the lighthouse and back up again :) Didn't go in the lighthouse so can't comment but visit the area... More

Even on a cold windy day this was worth a visit. The shop was nice with a welcome cuppa but the food was a little over priced for what it was. Trouble is there is no competition. I can imagine it gets very busy on a nice day and parking could be an issue.

Really beautiful view, unfortunately it wasn't open when we went so I can't say how the tour was. The walk down to it is a little steep but if you like that which we did it isn't bad at all. And you will get some truly Lovley veiws.

This has got to be one of the most stunning lighthouses in the UK. Beautiful walks along the cliff side, Rare Choughs flying around and the scenery is untouchable. Fantastic.

We stumbled upon this place by accident but since then we've come back twice and my hubby proposed here. A brilliant place to visit if you are in Wales, great for couples/family. We loved staying back and watching the sunset. We will definitely come again when we're in the area.

Gorgeous view of rugged coast line from the cliffs with hiking trails. We did not walk down to the lighthouse.

We visited the lighthouse so I could face my fear of crossing bridges. Trust me it really tested me but after climbing all those stairs to the very top of the lighthouse I wasn't worried on the way back. The guide was very informative and the views were stunning.

Went to South Stack with family and friends decided to jog down the steps than after taking photos by the bridge turned around and then ran back up to the carpark. It was hardcore stop a few times to catch my breath , in the end we did it , a "high 5" moment , not bad for two 50... More
