Lovely flat walk with amazing views. Several places en route to stop for a cuppa if you wish. You need to be aware that cyclists use this route as well.

Did this walk today with my family. Got the bus out to Penzance and then walked back into Marazion. Partially along the beach and some of it on footpaths. Not very strenuous and some stunning views over the bay. Will do again for sure.

Because of the high tide we had to take a boat to St Michael’s Mont. The water was choppy, but the ride was short. The fact that a family lived in the castle and there were pictures and stories about the children that lived there...More

Brilliant weather and nice easy path from Penzance railway station to Marazion and our final destination of St. Michaels Mount. Path is well used but fairly wide for the most part. Fabulous views the whole way there and back. Recommend.

Yes if the tide is out you can walk but if not there are lots of little boats to take you over. It’s fabulous! Enjoy!
