About

Marine Drive is situated on Douglas Head linking Douglas with Port Soderick. Douglas Head is a popular picnic spot with magnificant views over the bay.

Marine Drive is home to one of the six viewing points along the Island's coastline providing visitors with an opportunity to see and learn more about the Islands' marine life.

The viewing point includes detailed information showing images of the different species you may encounter. Binoculars are also available which provide you with the opportunity to have a better view of the surrounding coastline. 

Little Ness Car Park located on Marine Drive in Douglas is a registered Dark Sky Discovery Site and an interpretation board allows visitors to enjoy the stunning scenery on offer. 

The Island is ideally placed to see the magnificent sight of the Northern Lights on many occasions. The Northern lights are normally only seen from Northerly locations such as Alaska, Norway and Iceland, however the crystal clear Northern horizon from the Islands North eastern coast means this fascinating phenomenon can often be seen from the Island. The Manx Night sky is an amazing experience that will astound even the most experienced stargazer.
