Stunning scenery and wildlife on the Isle of Man
A 45 minute drive by coach takes in the main route from Douglas on the East coast Cregneash in the South of the Island. The walk starts from the Folk Village, there are a couple of short hills which give you the height to look back to Port St. Mary and the hills and coast running north.
Next take a stroll through local farmland and then rise up to the local land mark called The Chasms. This is an area of outstanding natural beauty with excellent views of nesting seabirds plus of course the interesting rock formations giving the area its name. After a short spell to take in the spectacular views and of course those all-important photographs you take an easy coastal path around Spanish Head to the Sound.
At the Sound you will see and hear the unmistakable calls of the local grey seal population and also have the opportunity to take tea or coffee in the café situated here (not included). You can also gaze over at the Calf of Man which is a renowned bird sanctuary where many migrating birds stop off for a rest on their journey to or from warmer climates. Inside the café you can observe the running film depicting life as it was through history on the calf of man and also an undersea view of marine life in the area.
From the Sound re-join your coach for the return journey to Douglas and your ship.
