IoM 'Best for Wreckers' according to The Times

Article recognises 40 best British beaches

The Isle of Man has been voted the 'Best for Wreckers' according to a survey in The Times.

Jurby Beach features in the article 'From Scilly to the Isle of Man' in the UK paper.

It's a piece that recognises the 40 best beaches in Britain.

The article says 'seaside aficionados often overlook the Isle of Man' and cites the 'wide, empty sands and a brow of low cliffs [that] create a sense of isolation.'

The term 'wrecker' refers to those beach lovers interested in finding wreckages. 

It adds 'as the tide ebbs, the rusting remains of the steam trawler Pasages — wrecked here in 1931 — emerge from the blue.'
