Conister Rock
Conister Rock
St Mary's Isle (also known as Conister Rock or, colloquially, the Tower of Refuge) is a partially submerged reef within Douglas Bay on the Isle of Man.
The reef is situated not far from the current ferry terminal. Its eastern part, the Conister Shoals, had to be blasted away when a new harbour breakwater was built in the early 1980. The rocks are only fully submerged during the Spring high tides, in the same period, they can be accessed very briefly on foot at the corresponding low tides.
