Something about holidays in Marazion reminds us of being in a fairytale. With the enchanting sight of St Michaels Mount looming high above the sea and two shimmering sandy beaches, Marazion holidays are the ultimate escape from it all. The oldest town in Cornwall, this is a place of myth and legend, where ancient cottages perch on hillsides and the sound of laughter drifts from friendly pubs. The streets of the town favour quirky boutiques over chains, and the cafes don’t disappoint when it comes to fresh, local produce and hearty portions.
There’s only one place to begin when it comes to our favourite Marazion attractions, and that’s with the ethereal and iconic St Michael’s Mount. This small tidal island sits in the bay and has attracted pilgrims in their thousands for centuries. You can wait for the tide to go out and walk your way across the causeway, or make your way by boat, but however you reach the foot of the mount, it’ll take your breath away.
