Tower of Refuge (aka St. Mary’s Isle)

The Tower of Refuge, also known as St. Mary’s Isle, is a small castle-like structure built upon a partially submerged reef in Douglas Bay, The structure was built after RNLI founder William Hillary petitioned for a sanctuary to be built on St Mary’s Isle

The reef had taken many ships and so the tower provided both a visible warning for incoming ships and a refuge for those in distress.

Not an attraction you can visit but as it is so visible often a question asked by people as to what it is and its purpose.
