Parts of the walk are well-marked, some parts have confusing path options, and can get you stranded on the beaches.

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.

An enjoyable walk from Marazion to St Michaels Mount. Make sure you get the timings right on the tides. St Michaels Mount beautiful in its own right. Pathway is cobbled, so not really suitable for the elderly, although I must say it did'nt stop many.

Get the tide right and walking the causeway to St Michaels Mount is a treat. Mount and Marazion itself have cafes and hotels. Beach great for families.

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!
