About Marazion

In the very early morning under the expansive skies of Marazion, golden sandy beaches stretch to the horizon and enthralling birdsong provides the only sound track. Walk the lonely beach and one feels immediately calm and at peace with the world. It is a different world to the latter part of the day when the beach is full of sun worshippers and the sea crammed with surfers.

The picturesque village of Marazion with its quaint cottages, shops and pubs, is in a sublime position on the west Cornwall peninsula and from here, depending upon the tide, it is possible to walk across the sands to St. Michaels Mount. The granite island, topped by the 14th-century fairy tale castle rises majesically 300ft above the sea. It is said the Romans shipped tin from here when the island was called Ictis, it is known that the Benedictine Order built a priory on the summit in the year 1135.

At a later date the island was fortified, and a new church with a tower was built in the 14th-century. In 1679, this special place became the island home of the St.Aubyn family but in recent years St.Michaels Mount passed into the hands of the national trust for the benefit of the nation.

Marazion is well worth a visit and not just for the grandeur that is St.Michaels Mount. There is safe swimming from the gently shelving sandy beaches, splendid sailing and windsurfing and stunning walks along the twisting coastal path. Walk this way in the late evening as the moon rises and you will be rewarded with a splendid vision of St.Michaels Mount, set like a jewel within a silver sea.

This is a famous tourist area and there are plenty of attractions which include; An RSPB site, the beautiful Trengwainton gardens owned by the national trust and there are several ancient monuments in the surrounding countryside.
