Strumble Head, Ynys Meicel, Ynys Onnen and Lighthouse at sunset

Strumble Head (Welsh: Pencaer) is a rocky headland of Pen Caer in north Pembrokeshire, Wales.

It gives its name to Strumble Head Lighthouse (on the island of Ynys Meicel) and Strumble VOR, a way point in many trans-atlantic flights.[1]

Strumble Head is one of the best sites in Britain to view cetaceans, particularly the porpoise which can be spotted in the tidal races around the headland with modest binoculars. Public cetacean watches are frequently organized by Sea Trust.[2] Seals can often be spotted in the waters beneath the light house. A wartime lookout post was converted for use by the public as a shelter from the wind for wildlife fans and was opened by Bill Oddie.[3]

A few hundred metres out to sea are two small uninhabited islands, Ynys Onnen and Carreg Onnen, which were put up for sale in 2004.[4]

A French shipwreck, possibly from the last invasion of Britain was found nearby in 2003.[5]
