Mona, or as the Manx lovingly call it, "Mannanin veg veen" (sweet little Mann), has an attraction particularly its own. Its glorious shores are the delight of thousands of annual visitors from all parts of the United Kingdom. It is the most popular sea-side resort of West England, and Lancashire, par excellence. The reason is plain. Its lovely glens and bays; its luxuriant vegetation, mild climate, and sea breezes, and the many amenities a stay offers to pleasure seekers, artists, sportsmen, and to the naturalist, the antiquary, and the faded business man, are irresistible; the native Manx, moreover, a homely and hospitable people, soon make you feel at home, and engage your sympathy.
