Marazion beach - circular walks

Marazion beach

The beach at Marazion, Cornwall

There is a beach at all states of the tide at Marazion. The upper part is shingly but smooth sand is revealed towards low tide. Particularly around Long Rock, the sand extends out quite a long way at low tide. Alongside the causeway to St Micheal's Mount, there are lots of rockpools. There's quite a lot of bird life, including winter visitors such as sanderlings. In autumn, seaweed is often washed up in storms which can get very smelly for a couple of weeks as it rots.
