Mounts Bay

Mount's Bay essentially covers Mousehole to Cudden Point, west Cornwall, but here we are talking about the beach that runs from Penzance to Marazion, also known as Marazion Beach.


It's a large beach close to Penzance and it even has the stunning backdrop of St Michael's Mount to gaze upon. When the tide is right you can even walk the causeway out to this magical island.


Local facilities can be found in both Penzance & Marazion.


Parking is available in a number of locations depending on what part of the beach you visit, although may be limited during peak times. Aim for RSPB Marazion Marsh near old Station Lane (take Newtown Lane at the A30 roundabout for Longrock if following the A30 into Penzance).
