While most of the Isle of Man's beaches offer incredible views they are often pebble beaches. Peel has one of the few fine sand beaches and during the occasional hot weather sitting on a sandy beach with great views of a medieval castle are something not to be missed.

Niarbyl

Heading south from Peel will lead you Niarbyl a tiny village with a pebble beach nearby. This location provides stunning views over the Irish sea towards Ireland, coastal walks and the opportunity for peace and quiet (when a coach-load of tourists aren't around). The little white cottage on the beach was used as the principal location in the film Waking Ned. Unfortunately, while there are a few buses per day from Peel the best way to reach Niarbyl is by car.

To the east of Peel lies St. John's, another small village and home to Tynwald Hill - the island's 1000 year old open air parliament. Thousands head here every Tynwald Day (July 5th) to witness the proclamation of new laws read in Manx and English.

Buses to Ramsey and Douglas leave from the stop on Derby road, near the Cathedral and the Town Hall.
