St Michael's Mount

St Michael's Mount is one of the National Trust's most famous properties. Just off the coast of Marazion, boats cross the water at high tide or you can walk the causeway at low tide.

St Michael's Mount Causeway, Cornwall

If possible, try to walk from Marazion to St Michael's Mount at low tide. Crossing on the causeway is great fun, especially if you have kids.

The Godolphin Arms, Cornwall

The Godolphin Arms is a pub on the coast at Marazion offering spectacular views of St Michael's Mount and Mount's Bay. This section of Cornwall has a number of pubs in special locations but The Godolphin Arms is one of the best.

Marazion Beach, Cornwall

Marazion is on the coast of Mount's Bay. At low tide, there's miles of sand and rock lining the bay. Marazion Beach (West) is pretty much in front of the town. It's a super place. There's plenty of parking behind the beach.

South West Coast Path, Beginning

The South West Coast Path runs along the coastline at Mount's Bay. Head west and you'll come to Penzance. Head east and you'll come to Prussia Cove.

Penzance Town Trail, Cornwall

Arguably the best way to get to know a place is on foot. Penzance, Newlyn and Mousehole have town trails. Walk them.

Prussia Cove, Cornwall

Prussia Cove is a stretch of coastline within a private estate to the south east of Marazion. There are a number of rocky coves that were once used for smuggling. Super place.

Godolphin, Cornwall

Godolphin is another National Trust property. East of Marazion, Godolphin generated its wealth from the Cornish mining industry. Walk to the top of Godolphin Hill. The views are huge.

St Ives Harbour

A thin neck of land separates The Land's End Peninsula from the rest of Cornwall. Marazion sits at the southern end of this neck. St Ives is to the north. It's an iconic Cornish coastal town, so visit.

The Land's End Peninsula (The Penwith Peninsula), Cornwall

The Land's End Peninsula is a remarkable place. Its coastline and beaches are up there with the best in the UK. Less well known is the concentration of prehistoric sites inland and its UNESCO World Heritage Site.
