Attractions

Skomer Island

Skomer Island PuffinThis National Nature Reserve is a haven for wildlife, with Grey Seals, Puffins, Manx Shearwaters, Guillemots & Razorbills. It is located near Marloes village on the Dale peninsula and is easily accessible from Nolton. There are sailings across the short sound from April to October. The boat across can only be booked on the day, and the office is open early for crossings between 10am and 12pm, returning in the afternoon.

The puffins are the main attraction in the early summer months, and the boat gets booked very early so it pays to stay local and get up early! Manx Shearwaters are only seen at night, and there are 120,000 breeding pairs on Skomer, making it the largest colony in the world!

Bluebells cover the island in late spring, followed by red campion in June.
