SENIORS TRAVEL TO ISLE OF MAN



Ladies Will Also Enjoy the Isle of Man

Situated between the coastlines of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales, in the middle of the Irish Sea, senior travelers find a beautiful Island. Legend has it that the Isle of Man was created when the Irish giant Finn MacCooill threw a chunk of earth from Ireland’s coastline towards Scotland, during battle, which promptly landed in the Irish Sea and became the Isle of Man.

Measuring just 33 miles in length and 13 miles in width, senior visitors find the Isle of Man really is larger than life and home to just over 81,000 residents who embrace a relaxed way of life. Within easy reach of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales and featuring breathtaking scenery, 100 miles of coastline, unspoiled beaches and a vast array of attractions, it is no wonder the island welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors every year.


Across the half a mile of water that separates the Isle of Man from the mainland and you’ll discover dinosaur footprints, traditional seaside resorts, world-renowned sailing villages, idyllic countryside and miles of stunning coastline. And it couldn’t be easier to explore the island with over 500 miles of footpaths and plenty of award-winning beaches perfect for a cooling dip when the sun gets too hot. Pretty exciting for such a small island.

Douglas is the capital of the Isle of Man with a population of over 25,000 and is situated on the east coast on the 2-mile crescent of Douglas Bay. Retaining its Victorian charm, Douglas is an important international center of banking, finance and commerce boasting an excellent choice of restaurants and wine bars, shopping facilities featuring many major high street stores plus a number of specialist shops as well as attractive waterside pubs and cafes.

Senior Hikers Discover Fascinating Landscapes

Senior Hikers! The Isle of Man has one of the worlds most fascinating landscapes – shaped by the last Ice Age, weathered by time and colored by human history. But much of this beautiful and dramatic scenery is rarely seen to its full advantage and can only be hinted at from a ground-level view on foot.

Blessed with an extensive coastline, stunning natural landscapes and unspoiled beaches, the Isle of Man is a perfect holiday destination for seniors. Whatever you’re looking for, whether it’s a journey back in time to discover the history of the Island, a traditional bucket and spade beach or just somewhere to stop and sit for a while – you’ll find it on the Isle of Man.

Seniors who visit the island find it to be a place full of contrasts and character. Visit the ancient cobbled streets of Casteltown to see one of Europe’s most preserved Medieval castles or Laxey in the east for a glimpse of the world’s largest working waterwheel. You’ll find long sandy beaches which contrast markedly with the rocky cliffs and sheltered bays around the rest of the Island.

Enjoy getting to know the Isle of Man. jeb
