The Sound

Type:Viewpoint

The Sound overlooking the Calf of Man

About

At the Island's very southern tip is one of the most scenic places in the British Isles. Abundant with wildlife and natural wonders, this area is a hotspot for seals sunbathing on the rocky Kitterland, a small rocky islet. The area is also frequented by dolphins and basking sharks and the swirling tidal races are popular with adventurous kayakers.

Walkers will also appreciate the coastal footpaths which lead from the The Sound to Port Erin or Spanish Head, Cregneash and the Chasms in Port St Mary.

If you have enough time book a boat trip to or around the Calf of Man. As a Nature Reserve and Bird Observatory, the Calf, a 600 acre islet located on one of western Britain's major migration routes, is an ideal place for bird life, fauna and flora. Around 33 species of seabirds breed on the islet annualy, include Manx Shearwater, Kittiwake, Razorbill and Shag. Other species normally observed on the island include Peregrine, Hen Harrier and Chough.
