Visiting and Staying on Skomer and Skokholm

Staying on the islands of Skomer and Skokholm is an incredible experience. The sounds of the islands at night are particularly special, Manx shearwaters fly in in their thousands to land in the relative safety of the dark. The islands themselves are quite different in character, Skokholm is wilder than Skomer, it being just that little further out and smaller than its sister island. All information about staying or visiting these special islands is available below.
