Port Erin is a quiet seaside resort which can accommodate small craft and small inshore fishing vessels.
Regular cruising trips depart from here to the Calf of Man from Easter to late September. Port Erin is also known for its diving facilities.
Commercial activities centre on occasional cruise liners which anchor within the bay as weather conditions suit and land passengers by tender.
