2 Day Wellness Itinerary

Wellness Holiday Isle of Man

The Isle of Man is a nirvana of relaxation, offering some of the most breathtaking scenery and nature that the British Isles has to offer, being the only nation in its entirety to be awarded a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve status .

In a world of digital connectivity where notifications pop up left, right, and centre, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and neglect the time to recharge and appreciate the moments that really matter.

Luckily, there’s a cure. Our two day wellness itinerary can take you from stressed to blessed faster than you can count to zen. 

Day 1 

Ballaglass Glen and Cornaa Pool

Start your day nature bathing in Ballaglass Glen, a beautiful woodland that features a babbling river, luscious greenery, and a carpet of bluebells in the springtime. Continue your walk towards Port Cornaa, past Lag Vollagh Freshwater Fish Hatchery, to the serene natural pool located alongside the footpath between Ballaglass Glen and Port Cornaa. Here you can indulge in a refreshing dip and try your hand at wild swimming. 


Next, head to to Milntown, the Island's country house estate. You can enjoy brunch at the cafe, featuring home grown produce fresh from the kitchen garden. Follow this with a wellness walk around the estate's beautiful gardens, with 15 acres of flowers and woodland to explore you won't want to leave.

The Ayres and Brightlife

Take a trip further north still, to The Ayres National Nature Reserve, an area of Special Scientific Interest with an 8km stretch of low-lying sand dune coastline and marked trails. The area is home to an abundance of local wildlife, making it the ideal place to get out your binoculars and see what you can spot. More information on the local wildlife, habitats, and plants can be found at the Nature Discovery Centre. 

The next thing on your agenda is a trip to Brightlife Spa, located in Andreas. Relaxation won't be hard to achieve at this serene spa, with its wide-open spaces and expansive views over the surrounding countryside. You can enjoy spa treatments and facilities, workshops, and delicious homemade food. Overnight stays are also available. 

The Cook Shack

Spend your evening cooking up a storm at The Cook Shack in Bride, nestled in a cottage garden with views stretching to the north of England and Scotland. This bespoke cookery school gives you the opportunity to create delicious dishes and treats, using a plethora of local produce. There's nothing like creating and consuming something tasty to make you feel good! 

Day 2 

Chapel Beach and Kishtey Cheh

Feel revitalised with a dip in the calm waters at Chapel Beach in the south's Port St Mary. The bay is protected from large waves by the breakwater, making it an idyllic place to enjoy a swim, paddle, or a float on the swimmers' raft. The 'cat-walk' leads from the right hand side of the bay to the inner and outer harbours and makes for a scenic stroll, perfect for those who might not fancy taking the plunge into the sea. Follow up with a warming drink at one of Port St Mary's cute cafes, we'd recommend Roots at the Bay or Cornerhouse Coffee

Head over to Port Erin, the neighbouring seaside town, where you'll find Kishtey Cheh Beach Spa. Located on the sand, the spa features a traditional wood-fired sauna, hot tub, and plunge pool. It's the perfect way to chill out in a beautifully aesthetic environment. The fresh water shower also gives you the option to freshen up after your spa session!

Cosy Nook

Next, grab some lunch from one of Port Erin's dining options. We'd suggest the Foraging Vintners, Noa, and Smoky Sam's BBQ pop-up at The Cosy Nook, conveniently located beside the beach spa.

Milner's Tower and Southern Boat Tour

From here, You can go on an invigorating walk through Bradda Glen to Milner's Tower and along the Raad Ny Foillan, the Island's premier long distance coastal footpath. Alternatively, you can hop on a boat tour with one of the small boat tour operators in Port Erin and Port St Mary. They can take you on an exciting trip around the south of the Island, or perhaps a visit to the Calf of Man. The Calf is a small, uninhabited island that extends to approximately 600 acres and is owned by Manx National Heritage, home to some of the finest wildlife in the British Isles. Both activities will leave you feeling at one with nature. 

Port Erin Paddleboards

In the evening, why not grab a mouth-watering traditional pizza at Byron's? Follow this up with a twilight-glo paddleboarding session with Port Erin Paddleboards, letting you glide over the waves with a glowing paddleboard under your feet (or knees!). We guarantee that you'll be feeling sensational by the end of the day.
