Flat Holm Island reopens to visitors


Day trips are resuming on Flat Holm from Saturday 3 July via fast-speed RIB boat.

The three-hour island escapes will include a welcome talk from the warden; self-guided tours about Flat Holm’s fascinating history and wildlife; and a visit to the Gull and Leek, Wales’ most southerly pub.

Flat Holm is a nature reserve managed by Cardiff Council. Positioned at the most Southerly point in Wales, 4.5 nautical miles from Cardiff.

The island is steeped in history and rich in wildlife with plenty to see and do. From the military remains with canons and gunning placements to the several species of wild birds, soay sheep and the unmistakeable Trinity House Lighthouse there is something for everyone to see and do.

Departing from Cardiff Bay heading through Cardiff Bay Barrage and out into the Bristol Channel, depending on the tides and weather, you will get an average of 2.5 – 3 hours on the island for your visit. On the return you will have the chance to see the island from the water before heading back to Cardiff. Flat Holm Island has a small shop, Wales’ most southerly pub – The Gull and Leek,  and plenty of space to relax and enjoy a picnic. For the more adventurous you can even stay overnight. (To be arrange directly with Cardiff Council).


Covid restrictions, such as wearing face coverings and social distancing, will apply for a safe trip.
