About the Isle of Man

Located within easy reach of the British Isles, neatly positioned just 31 miles from England and 31 miles from Ireland, you’ll find the beautiful Island paradise that is the Isle of Man. The jewel in the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man offers an incredible landscape of narrow inland glens, a tapestry of moorland and rolling hills. Rich in history and steeped in legend it provides visitors with an extraordinary experience.

It proudly boasts the award of the first entire country to be given UNESCO Biosphere status raising awareness of areas, projects and activities that help to make the Island unique. The biodiversity of the island is abundant with geology, wildlife, flowers, and birdlife all to be discovered in landscapes that take your breath away. Mountainous moorland upland habitats full of heather and charm, a coastline that’s been created over millions of years or even the rolling green pastures and magical and mystical national glens.

It’s a walker’s paradise with a near unlimited choice of routes including the various National Trails and of course our 95 mile Raad ny Foillan coastal footpath with its stunning landscape around every corner.

It’s far enough to give you that relaxed holiday feeling but close enough to give you the reassurance that you’re never too far from home, and with a temperate climate all year round – what are you waiting for?  There’s a true Manx welcome waiting for you…with proof that the best things really do come in small packages.
