The Old Breakwater in Port Erin has been closed to the public after storm damage left it "dangerously unstable".
According to the Department of Infrastructure (DoI) a "cavity the size of a small car" has appeared following recent poor weather on the island.
A DoI spokeswoman said: "Part of the breakwater was carried away on the harbour side and a large amount of infill was washed away."
With further bad weather forecast the area has now been fenced off.
Department of Infrastructure engineers are currently investigating the damage.
