The Stags seen beyond Benwee Head

The Stags of Broad Haven are a group of five cliffed rocky islets with a total area of 4 ha and rising to almost 100 m, above sea level and are about 2 km north of the cliffs of Benwee Head. The sea has cut an east/west tunnel entirely through An Teach Beag. The Stags are a popular site for visiting divers, sub aqua teams and kayakers.
