This low-lying stretch of the coastal path follows the sea's edge from the airport passing areas of historic battles, sandy bays and Fort Island. Continue on the path to Langness and the lighthouse to find a shingle beach-side path which was once a horse racing course for the Earls of Derby until you arrive in the heart of the Island's ancient capital. Here you'll find many architectural treasures including Hango Hill, King William's College, and then in Castletown itself, the medieval fortress Castle Rushen, the Old House of Keys and the Nautical Museum. Continue along the exposed coast to arrive in the sheltered harbour of Port St Mary.
