I am biased as this is my home town but it is simply stunning and beautiful at any time of the year. The lighthouse itself can be visited for most of the year but if the weather is really bad, the bridge is closed and you can only make it to the bottom of the steps. The trip back up... More

As you round the headland, a great lighthouse and for my money, best seen on a wild day with the waves crashing around it

We took a very quick visit to the south stack light house during our stay in Llandudno. It was absolutely beautiful even in the gloomy autumn evening. If you climb up the cliff you can admire the sceneries of the Welsh coastline.

Amazing view - such a peaceful place! A short walk brings you to the coast of Angelesey. With a dramatic backdrop of cliffs and shining sea, sunsets can be sooo beautiful and light from the lighthouse still rotates. Nature lovers and photographers will especially love it.

The views are amazing were you can see all sorts of wildlife. The steps are quite steep and tiring to get up. The only bad thing is that you can only go down steps to bridge, and can not go on island as closed although it is worth going to see.Also be careful as steep cliff on edge and can... More
