Ayres visitor centre
Internationally important for its wildlife, particularly the extremely rare lichen dominated heath, the Ayres stretches from Blue Point in the west to the Point of Ayre in the east. Manx National Heritage owns a small but representative part, including marram grass-covered dune and ‘gaelic’ heath.
Orchids and Burnet Rose are specialities, and the dunes are home to burrowing beetles and solitary wasps and bees. Visitors are asked not to disturb the colonies of nesting terns on the beach.
Located in The Ayres, Bride - the centre is open May - Sept (daily except Mondays).
