  1. Round the Sound

Coastal birds, amazing geology, cliffs and ancient forts. 8 miles/13 km.

A circular walk taking in some truly captivating views that make this one of the finest coastal walks in the British Isles! We set off from Port St Mary and head around the coast to explore near to the Chasms (deeply fissured rock formations), the Sugarloaf (home to kittiwakes, guillemots and razorbills), the promontories of Black Head and Spanish Head, and the atmospheric sight of the Sound away to the Calf of Man and Kitterland with their colonies of seals…..and much more. There’s so much to absorb which you can reflect upon during the scenic route back to Port Erin and Port St Mary. Allow - 5 hours. Rating – Moderate.
