We LOVE LOVE LOVE Port Erin and the south of this beautiful island. There's lots to do right here in this stunning part of the world. We are great water sport enthusiasts and love paddle-boarding, kayaking and sailing, all of which can be arranged locally. We are happy to arrange sessions with local providers.
Let Port Erin Paddleboards show you the joy of stand up paddle-boarding with a lesson, a short tour, a sunset or twilight glo-paddleboarding session in glorious Port Erin Bay.
Hop onto Shona Boat Trips for a visit to the Calf of Man Nature Reserve. If it's a trip with a 3 hour stay, we can arrange a picnic to take along.
Follow the Raad ny Foillan or 'Way of the Gull' footpath around the rugged cliffs between Port Erin and the quaint little village of Port St Mary and see the great variety of bird life and maybe seals, dolphins or basking sharks along the way.
Visit the Port Erin Heritage Centre in Bridson Street to find out about Port Erin's past as a WW2 internment camp and its glory days as top holiday destination before the age of cheap flights.
Visit the Steam Railway Museum, have a cuppa in the Whistlestop Cafe then hop on a steam train to Port St Mary (you can easily walk back) or Castletown or Douglas.
Hire bikes from Erin Bike Hut and explore on two wheels.
Join my friend Ian of Walking Mann for a guided walk around the south complete with fun, jokes and excellent local knowledge.
Play a round of golf at Rowany Golf Course and try not to let the stunning views put you off your game.
Hire kayaks or book sailing lessons with 7th Wave.
Hang around the beach all day, soak up some Manx sunshine, eat fish and chips and have a beer overlooking Port Erin Bay at The Bay Hotel or Foraging Vintners.
