The new visitor centre will enhance the Niarbyl experience
A new visitor centre is opening near Niarbyl Bay on the Isle of Man.

A former private residence has been converted to build the centre while new coach and car parking facilities have been installed.

Manx National Heritage said the new facility offered an enhanced experience for people visiting one of the island's most scenic areas of coastline.

The visitor centre, which features films about the area, was being opened on Friday.

Director of Manx National Heritage, Stephen Harrison, said: "I hope that visitors to the new cafe and visitor centre will agree that we have created a facility which not only offers a high level of modern services, but also provides a new level of access to Niarbyl as a whole.

"Information on the area will be available in a series of specially made films about the area which we hope will provide visitors with a new depth of knowledge and encourage them to explore the area with greater understanding and enjoyment, in addition to enjoying the fine food and refreshments on offer at the new Niarbyl Cafe."

The centre will be open daily from 1000 BST to 1700 BST until 31 October and on weekends from 1000 GMT to 1600 GMT from 1 November until Easter 2006.
