Location

Situated at the Southern tip of the Island, close to Port St Mary and separated by the Sound and Calf Of Man, both villages were prosperous fishing villages where tourists flocked in their droves for summer holidays to the unique scenery and mystical charm of Port Erin, unfortunately through time things have changed but people are now starting to re-discover the Isle Of Man.

Port Erin

Port Erin can still boast of its beautiful safe sandy beach and clean bay enclosed by natural scenic headlands, with Bradda Head and Milner Tower towering above the entrance to the bay. On a clear day look across the bay and you can see the Mountains of Mourne in Ireland and in the evening the sunsets are magical and unforgettable.

There is something for all. Bars and eateries for evenings out, the home of the Manx Steam Railway and Museum, 18 hole Rowany Golf Course, bowls, cycling, water-sports and of course walks. Port Erin Arts Centre which has concerts and festivals throughout the year.
