Weather & Climate in Isle of Man
Average temperature (°C) & rainfall (mm) per month
Isle of Man offers 160 kilometres of glittering coastline and 221 square miles of green and gold pastures dotted with medieval castles, folk villages and wild countryside.
Since colonisation of the island began around 6500 BC the island has been traversed by hordes of raiders and traders. The most famous tale is that of the Vikings.
They arrived on the island around 800 AD and plundered the land with their trademark roguish flair. However, in true Isle of Man fashion, the island pierced their wild hearts and a famous love affair blossomed. The notorious Norwegian brutes had been tamed and they settled on the island.
While the island has retained its historical prestige, its allure stems from its ramshackle peculiarities.
It is home to the largest working water wheel in the world; was the birthplace of the disco jiving Bee Gees; houses an impressive collection of vintage locomotives; and is famous for its eccentric folklores – a notable vice chairman has confessed that the island is indeed overrun with fairies.
The Isle of Man is a curious and magical place that will steal your heart and have you looking over your shoulder for goblins and giants.

Isle of Man is safe. However, as it is with any major cities, crime does happen. It is advisable to take certain precautions and maintain vigilance as you would in any other unfamiliar city. Travel insurance to cover theft and medical expenses is recommended.
Avoid carrying large sums of cash and important documents, as pick-pocketing and bag snatching can happen. Be vigilant when driving along country roads. Agricultural traffic and roaming animals are common. Remain on designated footpaths when exploring the coastline or cliffs, especially when mist is thick, clouds are low and winds are strong. Stick to popular areas when swimming in the ocean.
