Lying in the Celtic Sea two miles off the southwest Pembrokeshire coast, Skokholm has its own charm and sense of remoteness with tall, sandstone cliffs and a wild landscape. The island is approximately half a mile across at its widest point and a mile in length which makes it perfect for exploring. There are never more than 26 people on the island, that’s 10 acres of space for every visitor!

Wildflowers create a backcloth with the white haze of sea campion seen even from offshore in May. Porpoises and dolphins frequent the coast to reward the vigilant observer, while grey seals are hard to miss, often hauled out on the rocks in South Haven or Crab Bay. A great way to see Skokholm is on a wildlife safari or an evening boat cruise which is especially good for viewing rafts of birds heading back to their chicks.
