What Our Top Instagram Posts Say about the Isle of Man

A picture is worth a thousand words, or so the saying goes, and this could not hold truer for the Isle of Man. We have gathered ten of our best photos from Instagram to showcase our vibrant Island life.

Pictures tell a story. They share our moments and really bring to life what we feel on a daily basis. Pictures liven up our days and capture stunning moments that we can hold on to. They have the power to save a memory or feeling- however fleeting.

These collected images are our top Instagram posts. They tell our story. These images speak volumes about the Isle of Man and express, perfectly, how we lead our lives.

 

1. Make sure you take time to catch an evening sunset.

Sunset at Bradda Head

Port Erin Beach, overlooking Bradda Head and Milner’s Tower is a great place to finish your day and catch the final glimpses of the sun’s rays. This image comes to us from @andrea_hawley_photography.

   

2. Always be on the lookout for natural magic.

Northern Lights

With our northernly position and an incredible 26 Official Dark Sky Discovery Sites, the most in the British Isles, the Isle of Man occasionally gets treated to a glorious light show from the Aurora Borealis. 

@JamesBrewPhotography captures the absolute beauty of the Northern Lights from Ballaugh Beach.

  

3. Be ready to spot fairies… and make sure you say ‘hello’.

Fairy house at Bradda Head

Fairies have long taken up residence on the Isle of Man; they even have their own bridge which you must wave ‘hello’ as you cross. When Swedish art collective @anonymouse_mmx heard of our fairies, they just had to build them proper homes. This house is one of four (that we know of!) dotted around the Island’s glens.

   

4. Traverse the countryside.

Cycling in Peel

As the birthplace to greats like Mark Cavendish and Peter Kennaugh, the Isle of Man's terrain is perfect for road cycling, mountain biking, and trail riding. This image was taken in Peel on one of our endless bike paths. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

   

5. Take to the sea.

Niarbyl

The power and majesty of the Irish Sea is never more evident than at Niarbyl in the South west of the Isle of Man.

Niarbyl Coast is home to rocks from two different ancient continents and forms a major geological fault. The rocks and sandstone at Niarbyl are from over 480 million years ago and represents the only remnants of the ancient ocean ‘Iapetus’.

   

6. Get lost to find something new.

Two roads

Over 40% of the Island is uninhabited, meaning that there is always something new to discover. We love getting lost along the miles of footpaths and spending the days wandering around one of our glens or forests. The Isle of Man is truly an explorer’s paradise.

7. Travel. Often.

Aeroplane view

The Isle of Man is located in the heart of the British Isles and thus is close to everything! With over 200 flights a week and ferries to the UK and Ireland, the dream of 'travel more' will move from your #bucketlist to your #donelist.

Thanks @fly_ing_machine for getting this brilliant image!

    

8. Always know your way home.

Langness Lighthouse

There are 12 lighthouses dotted along the Isle of Man. Each are beautiful, unique and tell their own story. This image is of Langness Lighthouse which sits on the south-easterly point of the Isle of Man.

        

9. Take a walk on the wild side.

Highland cows

The Isle of Man is the first and only entire jurisdiction in the world to be awarded UNESCO Biosphere Status. The award honours our ecosystem and environment, with Highland cows and Loaghtan Sheep roaming our hillsides whilst corporate giants continue to innovate in town centre.

10. Always make room for a bit of fun.

 Fireworks

In the Isle of Man, we understand that life is more than boardrooms and conference calls. Our excellence in business stems from a skilled workforce of highly capable and well-rounded individuals who know that life is all about balance. Our days start with a short commute to work, followed by lunch at a local spot enjoying the freshest seafood you can imagine, a 10 minute drive to the beach after work for a wind-surfing or kayak session and end with a glass of wine or a pint with friends at a local pub or wine bar… Sound perfect? Yeah, we think so, too!
