Sound and Calf of Man
At the southern-most tip of the Isle of Man is the Sound, one of the most beautiful spots in the Island to spend time sitting and relaxing as you get away from it all.
The popular cafe, which also serves as a visitor centre packed with information about the surounding area, is a great place to stop for a bite to eat before taking a stroll along the spectacular coastline.
Looking out across a narrow stretch of water from the Sound is the Calf of Man, an island measuring almost one square mile which now serves an important role as a point to observe the habits of the hundreds of bird species which visit throughout the year.
While most visitors are content to view the islet from afar, it is possible to make short journey across and visit the Calf. Anyone wishing to make the trip is advised to look for the information boards at Port St Mary and Port Erin harbours as these seasonal trips depend upon visitor numbers, weather and tide.
