Staycation in the Isle of Man
A cancelled summer holiday abroad has paled into insignificance in comparison to everything else. However a staycation in the Isle of Man maybe just the ticket and a change of scenery with the family and the dog would be lovely. A staycation in Port Erin may be the answer...
Walking in the Isle of Man
There are endless walking routes from Port Erin. How about a relaxing stroll to Port St Mary, Gansey Bay then back to Port Erin. Or a stroll to Castletown to view the historic Castle Rushen, and wander through the streets of the ancient Capital. Extend the walk to include Langness for perfect views before a peaceful night in Palm Villa.
Outdoor activities in the Isle of Man
Canoeing, gorge scrambling, sailing, coasteering, sea swimming, victorian steam train, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, surfing, the list is endless.
Hiking in the Isle of Man
A hike up to Milner's Tower for photographs and a well-earned picnic in the beautiful Manx sunshine would be beautiful. Following the path back to Bradda Head, and a meander through Bradda Glen via the famous abandoned open air swimming baths built in 1899 is a great way to get our daily exercise. If you are feeling energetic, a walk over The Sloc will kill a few hours, followed by a well deserved take-out supporting the local restaurants of Port Erin.
Port Erin Beach
Letting the dog run around on Port Erin's glorious sandy beach is a treat, with the perfect opportunity for you to be amongst the community whilst still social distancing. It a beautiful spot to grab a coffee from Palm Villa, and have a read with your toes in the sand.
