Port St. Mary may rightly be called one of the gems in the crown of the Isle of Man. It is a small working port situated in the South of the Island, with both Inner and Outer harbours and piers offering a safe anchorage. It is home to the I.o.M. Yacht Club, and the training section can often be seen in action providing a very colourful display.

It is well served by public transport and has its own Station on the Victorian Steam Railway line between Douglas and Port Erin. The station is only some 250 metres from Alana House.

There is a safe sandy beach, which again is only some 100 metres from Alana House, and the Promenade leads to the scenic marine walkway from Chapel Beach to the Harbour areas. This forms part of the Round the Island coastal footpath.

For the sports minded there is golf, tennis, bowls and a variety of water sports, in addition to boat trips for fishing and visiting the Calf of Man. The National Folk Museum of Cregneish is only one mile away.
