Port Erin, Isle of Man

Explore Port Erin Beaches and Coastline

Port Erin is a seaside village on the southwest coast of the Isle of Man. The village sits within a horseshoe bay with two headlands that can on a windy day create a funnel onto the beach, but with the flip-side of this being a suntrap on calm days. Port Erin was a popular tourist destination and a lot of the old hotels still give this a Victorian charm. The original railway station still exists today and is a terminus on the Douglas to Port Erin line of 25km (15.5 miles). Due to the westerly location you can get some great views of the setting sun over the headlands.
