Scenic coastal and inland views on foot (8 miles)


From Douglas, we cross the harbour and climb Douglas Head, catching our breath to enjoy the classic view of the bay with hills beyond. Turning south, we follow the Marine Drive which was built in the 1890s and now forms part of the island's coastal footpath and affords wonderful clifftop views out to sea. At Keristal we turn inland and head back to town along quiet country lanes, passing the Old Fairy Bridge and following the river until it reaches the harbour.
