Lovely trip to the sound and views to sit and admire all day. Restaurant can get busy and seating at times can be limited but in good weather loads of outside space to enjoy and benches plentiful. Looking across the sound seals play on the rocks and come close enough to visitors to get your photographs. Wild cliffs, hidden caves and huge vistas really spoil the eye here. A must visit for all who visit the island.

5* and "amazing" is for the area, the sound itself and the spectacular scenery. The Visitor Centre, as has been mention ... isn't. As a cafe it serves reasonably priced fayre, especially considering it is a tourist trap and compared to other tea shops on the island who know how to charge the tourist £. Binoculars available to borrow, so maybe that's the "Visitor Centre" bit. Don't eat outside ... seagulls.

The guidebooks say these are the best views on the Isle of Man. That's a pretty high bar to set but at least one of us agreed 100%. The sea, the Calf of Man, rocks, cliffs - the whole package. Also seals but at quite a distance.

The cafe has great views and for a tourist attraction the prices for food were reasonable. We had two hot chocolates with cream and marsh mallows and it was £7.00. There are lovely coastal walks around here and you can even see seals. When we went it was pouring with rain and we did manage to see seals and the cafe was very busy.

Agree we didn't bother with the visitor centre but just took in the amazing views of calf of Man wild rocks and sea and if you lucky you can see the seals bobbing about We saw quite a few seals close up which was incredible
