Laxey's traditional village has important Manx National Heritage sites which includes the giant waterwheel Lady Isabella - the world's largest working water wheel.

Facilities

Berths available

Berthing is limited because of the size of the harbour, but leisure craft can use the channel berths in favourable conditions. No deep water berths are available as the whole harbour dries at each low water. Seasonal mooring buoys are placed in Garwick Bay (1 mile south) over the summer period for visiting vessels.
