Handa Island Wildlife Reserve, Handa Island

Stretch your legs at Handa Island Wildlife Reserve, a wildlife reserve for seabirds and a fantastic scenic setting for walks and relaxation. Bird watchers will especially love this spot, which offers opportunities to observe whole colonies of resident razorbills, puffins, and guillemots. Take time to learn about the birds' biology and study identification charts at the visitor's hut. Rangers offer maps and binoculars, so you can explore the park by yourself on grassy trails and boardwalks. Be mindful of the weather and dress appropriately, as there is no shelter on the path.
