Port Erin Beach

Port Erin Bay is found on the south-western tip of the Isle of Man. The delightful sandy beach here curves around the bay in a horseshoe-shape and faces west, making it a great spot to capture the magnificent sunsets which can be seen here.
Towering above the north end of the beach are the cliffs of Bradda Head, atop of which sits a key-shaped monument which commemorates William Milner, a local philanthropist. On clear days it is sometimes possible to see the Irish coast, and the beautiful Mourne Mountains in the distance.
A promenade runs adjacent to the beach and the small Victorian resort town of Port Erin has a good range of facilities. On the beach itself, there is a picturesque whitewashed café, a perfect spot to stop off for a cup of tea after taking in the lovely views.
