Visiting the Isle of Man - key things to know

Ballaugh Beach


Ballaugh Beach


This sand and shale beach is located on the exposed North West of the island. Popular with windsurfers and kite-surfers but not ideal for beginners or the faint-hearted!

Dark Sky Site

Ballaugh Beach car park is one of 26 registered Dark Sky Discovery Sites and is perfect for stargazing. The area has Milky Way status as a Dark Sky site, meaning it has minimal light pollution and beautifully dark skies. As well as the stars above you, you may also get the chance to sight the Aurora Borealis. With the help of Interpretation Boards on site, stargazers can fully enjoy the stunning views on offer in the Manx skies.

Advice and Safety:

The stargazing site is a large flat area, with bushes lining the site’s perimeter. The beach is close by to the site.

Dogs allowed all year round.
