Skomer Island

Home to southern Britain's largest Puffin colony!

Home to around half the world’s population of Max shearwaters and southern Britain’s largest colony of Atlantic puffins, Skomer is an island nature reserve that we’re proud to have on our doorstep.

The island is accessed by boat from Martin’s Haven, a small harbour on the stunning Marloes Peninsular, and is open to the public from Easter to the end of September. Sailing times vary, as does the demand for boat trips, so we’d recommend checking the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales website for further information. You’ll have to pay for both the boat journey and a landing fee, which covers vital conservation work on the island.

The wealth of birdlife is the main attraction to the island but depending on when you’re visiting you may also see Atlantic Grey Seals, the Skomer Vole (unique to the island), dolphins and porpoises.

If you’re a photographer, Skomer should be at the top of your to-do list, especially when the flowers are in full bloom!
