We’ve visited the tower. The RSPB member told us about the puffins and other birds. There are some binoculars there and they can be used for free (of course they told us about joining and the staff was a little pushy, maybe it would be better to let visitors enjoy their day and have an entrance fee).
The isle with the lighthouse wasn’t open to the public, it will open at the beginning of April. The South Stack lighthouse is still functioning. We were able to reach the bridge to the isle. There are lovely views of the cliffs, so it was worth it.
I believe many people would prefer a sunny beach with blue clear water. I don’t. I love the cliffs, the roughness is my favourite part of nature. It’s so beautiful and wild. It’s not comfortable, it’s windy and cold, but at the same time it is powerful and magnetic. I can’t wait to go back in 2 months time to see the bird colonies nesting and the lighthouse.
