Spanish Head is a headland on the southwestern tip of the Isle of Man, rising over 100 m from sea level. You can see the island of the Calf of Man which lies to the southwest of the head, separated from it by the Calf Sound.
A popular location for walkers taking in both The Chasms and The Sound and for bird watchers with the cliffs providing great breeding grounds.
The area is also one of the popular rock climbing locations on the island.
The name Spanish Head is thought to arise from the tale of a ship from the Spanish Armada that was wrecked in the area, though there is no evidence to suggest this. Locals suggest that the name may originate from the Manx name for the type of rock in the area.
