RSPB South Stack Cliffs Reserve

Enjoy a close-up view onto a wonderful cliff-side nesting colony, with binoculars and telescopes provided. You'll 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! Rare choughs can also be seen on the reserve.


In spring and summer, the heathland becomes a riot of colour. Look closely and you may see a basking adder, while out to sea there may be porpoises and dolphins.

Opening times

The RSPB reserve is open all year-round. The Visitor Centre, with shop and cafe, is open from 10 am to 5 pm daily (except Christmas Day), and Ellin's Tower Seabird Centre is open from 10 am to 5 pm from Easter to September.

Entrance charges

Free, but donations to help us continue our work here are welcome.
