Port Erin

(Purt Chiarn)

Old smuggling site, Victorian sea side dream, or modern town. It can all be found in Port Erin with its sheltered harbour, beautiful beach and shops with almost everything.

Along the south of the island lies a quiet little town. Port Erin owes much of its existence to the Victorian tourists, who came for the beautiful sandy beach set in an enclosed harbour, local cafe's and simple gardens.

Today Port Erin still enjoys the tourist trade, as well as local trade. Its beaches and town centre still hold much of the appeal they ever did. Welcoming visitors from all over to spend time near the far end of the Isle of Man.
