Skomer Island

Skomer Island lies off the coast of Pembrokeshire in south-western Wales.

Covering 1.13 square miles in area, the island is renowned for its amazing wildlife and is a National Nature Reserve as well as a Site of Specific Scientific Interest. A third of the population of Manx Shearwaters nest here, with Atlantic puffins and many other seabirds also congregating in their thousands every year.

Ferries sail between Martins Haven, on the mainland, and Skomer during the Easter to October period. There is a maximum number of visitors allowed on the island every day but you can either get on a day boat trip to Skomer or book to stay in some of the island’s self-catering accommodation during the spring and summer months.
