Our guide to Praa Sands & Marazion holidays
With St Michael’s Mount jutting from the sea just off its coastline, there’s a magical quality to Marazion that makes it easy to see why it’s attracted pilgrims and sightseers for hundreds of years. Right in the far west of Cornwall, Marazion sits opposite the iconic island, and when the tide recedes its visitors can make their way across to St Michael’s Mount and explore the myths and legends it’s inspired over the centuries.
Back onshore, the town’s home to two family-friendly beaches and an RSPB nature reserve so there’s plenty of space to relax and enjoy the scenery. If you’re anything like us days out in the fresh air mean a hankering for a plate of something hearty, and the good news is that Marazion has everything from local pubs that haven’t changed for years and sophisticated restaurants that showcase the area’s local produce throughout the year.
One more thing – St Michael’s Mount is illuminated on Tuesday and Sunday evenings and trust us, it’s a sight that’ll stay with you for a long time to come.
