St Michael’s Mount is stunningly beautiful! Situated just off the shore of Marazion, this is a definite must see whilst in Cornwall. We timed it so we were there bright and early and were able to catch the boat over to the island while the tide was still in at a cost of £2 per adult or £1 per child. This takes you into the little harbour where you can have a stroll around the small village located at the foot of the island. A small number of families still live on the island and if you want, you are able to take a guided tour and find out a bit more about village life. There is a small cafe on the island where you can stop and have a bite to eat before making your ascent up the steep windy track up to the castle perched high above. The castle itself is now owned by the National Trust however the original family have a 999 year lease which allows them to still live here.
After navigating the rather higgledy piggledy pathway we arrived at the top and were treated to some splendid views. We were lucky enough to have another day of sun and could see for miles! Could even see Mousehole and Penzance where we had spent the previous day.
The Tudor Chippy on the main street along the seafront provided an excellent fish and chips for lunch which we sat and enjoyed on the beach and enjoyed the view 🙂 Perfect end to our visit to Marazion.
