Marazion

Marazion beach, Cornwall

Dominated as it is by the imposing St. Michael's Mount, many people overlook Marazion as a beach in its own right.

Marazion Beach lies about three miles due east of Penzance and although is close to Marazion town, it seldom gets overcrowded. Most visitors use it to access the causeway over to St. Michael's Mount.

The south-facing beach consists of golden sand with a few pebbles. The beach is popular with families and offers safe bathing with lifeguard cover for the school holidays between early July and the start of September.

To the east there are some rock pools for younger family members. Marazion beach itself is roughly a mile long, near the Station House Inn the beach becomes Longrock beach and then it becomes Eastern Green.
