Marazion beach in Cornwall provides access, via a causeway at low tide or by boat at high tide, to the stunning St Michael’s Mount, the picturesque Cornish island hosting a medieval castle and sub-tropical gardens. Views of the mount and Mounts Bay from Marazion are spectacular.
Marazion is a fine beach in its’ own right; a relatively sheltered sand and pebble beach, it is a particularly good spot for sports and pastimes such as windsurfing, kite flying and sailing. Part of one of the longest stretches of beach in Cornwall, Marazion beach combines with Longrock and Eastern Green beaches to stretch from Marazion to Penzance, a distance of around 3 miles.
A small car park is located by the beach and access to the beach is easy. The town of Marazion provides facilities including shops, toilets, children’s play area, cafés and pubs. Lifeguards patrol the beach in the summer season. Dogs are not permitted.
