Friendly, quaint, close to Penzance.
Not that I can think of.
Worth visiting or using as a base to explore West Cornwall.
That sounds a bit harsh, but I mean it kindly.Although Marazion has little in the way of historical buildings it nevertheless has the usual range of attractive architecture and narrow lanes which one might expect in a fishing-village-turned-visitor-attraction (and artist hotspot). So a wander is well worthwhile, not least for the creations on...more
On a tiny island in beautiful Mount's Bay sits Saint Michael's Mount, the dramatic castle looming over the landbridge that can be crossed on foot only at low tide. The varied and exciting history of the island includes ancient sun-worshipping religious cults, Phoenician traders, an appearance by the archangel Michael, an evil giant named Cormoran...more
Once you are in Marazion you have to visit the most interesting attraction from those places which certainly is Saint Michael's Mount. A wonderful island containing a great castle perfect placed on a mountain. Until 12:30 PM you can even follow the path to the castle by walking while when return you will have to make the trip by boat as the sea is...more
Turnpike Road, Marazion, TR17 0DQ , United Kingdom
Good for: Business
A friendly pub, with local ale (St. Austells' 'Tribute') and Cornish cider on tap, at very reasonable prices (you'll get change from a fiver for two pints!!!). There are spectacular panoramic views of Mount's Bay and St Michael's Mount from the bar and beer garden.
You can easily bus to and from Penzance from Marazion using the regular First bus services that stop all along the main road. It's only 85p and less than fifteen minutes to get to Penzance from Marazion, or you can just walk the route along the sands of Mount's Bay. That'll take you about an hour, if I remember correctly, but it's worth doing at...more
You can easily travel by the "300" Service Bus from Penzance to Marazion. You will travel only 10-15 minutes and if you choose this bus you can see everything from the roofless top floor. You can catch this bus from every two ours. Although you can take another bus but it won't be so nice. The price for a return ticket is ₤1.40 (from Penzance...more

It is fine to swim over to The Mount, but try not to get caught on the Causeway as the tide comes in.There are strong undercurrents and it comes in fast. There is always some tourist who thinks they can still make it across, even when the water is covering the cobbles. A third of the way in they're getting washed all over the place, Sorry, but it...more
Marazion Beach is a popular destination for windsurfing, sailing and kitesurfing, and hosts international sailing and kite/windsurfing competitions.
The Mounts Bay Sailing Club is very close, and apparently it is possible to arrange for boats to be kept in their pen. At the far end of Marazion beach there is a windsurfing school, and it must certainly be a good place to learn when the conditions are right!
There were lots of people windsurfing when we visited, the bay was full of them! You can just see some of the sails in this photo.
