St Michael‘s Mount
This is where you’ll enjoy one of Cornwall’s, and England’s, most famous views. Built along the south west coast of Cornwall, on the fringe of Penwith Peninsula, Marazion looks out onto St Michael's Mount. An extraordinary National Trust property on a tidal island, take either a shuttle boat when the tide’s in or walk the causeway when the tide’s out.

Mount‘s Bay
Marazion is part of Mount's Bay, a beautiful arc of coast with a massive, sandy beach. A short distance to the west is Penzance. St. Ives is to the north.

Local attractions
Local attractions other than St Michael’s Mount include Tate St Ives and St Ives Bay, the UNESCO World Heritage mining landscape and a range of prehistoric sites on Penwith Peninsula. A little further away, try Porthcurno Beach and Minack Theatre, Land's End and Sennen Cove Beach.

To the east, we’d recommend a trip to Porthleven and Gweek’s National Seal Sanctuary, the gardens at Trevano and Godolphin House.

Coastal walking on the South West Coast Path is a must. Walk Mount's Bay, St Ives Bay, Whitesand Bay and the coast around Botallack.

Longer day trips
For longer day trips, try Helford on the Helford/Helford Passage Ferry or take a trip to Lizard Point. The beaches at Kynance Cove, Kennack Sands and Coverack Beach are great. Falmouth has some major attractions including the National Maritime Museum, Cornwall and Falmouth Pendennis Castle.
