Where in the world is the Isle of Man?
The answer is, "Smackdab in the middle of the Irish Sea."
This smallish island (13 miles wide and 33 miles long) is about a three-hour ferry ride from Liverpool. It is a place of varying and contrasting beauty, with rocky shorelines, rugged ocean cliffs, mountains, moors, forests, beaches, and castles.
Its capital city, Douglas, boasts a two-mile crescent-shaped promenade facing the sea, its entire length filled with guest houses and hotels built during Victorian times to entice wealthy vacationers to see and be seen. It is a popular tourist destination, with a year-round temperate climate, and activities for everyone.
