5 Spots for Spectacular Sunsets

Sunset chasers – we have just the guide for you! Here is a list of our top 5 favourite places to watch the sunset in the Isle of Man.

1. Port Erin & Bradda Head

Port Erin is a picturesque town in the southwest of the Island and sunsets are definitely one of its fortés! Beautiful views of the sunset can be seen from the beach itself, higher up on the hills, or, if you are in the mood, local winery Foraging Vintners is situated towards the end of the bay and provides a beautiful platform to enjoy the sunset.

2. Niarbyl

Niarbyl is just south of Dalby and is a peaceful bay which is a great viewing spot for some remarkable sunsets. Niarbyl Bay is also one of the 26 official dark sky spots (the highest concentration in the British Isles) here in the Isle of Man so why not stay an extra hour after the sunset and enjoy some stargazing too?

3. Peel Beach

The view from Peel beach and promenade is nothing short of breath-taking at all times of the day, but we especially enjoy watching the sunset behind the medieval Peel Castle. Known as ‘Sunset City’ for good reason, we would also recommend catching a sunset from both the castle itself and experiencing the sunset views up Peel Hill.

4. Glen Wyllin Beach

Glen Wyllin Beach comprises a long stretch of sand on the western coast of the Island and offers a chance to be level with the horizon, making it seem as if the sun melts directly into the sea beyond.

5. Jurby Beach

Locally known as one of the Island’s hidden beaches, if you are looking for a remote coastal spot, Jurby Beach is situated in the north of the Island and provides some spectacular sunset views across the water.
