An easy 2.1 mile walk along the South West Coast Path from Penzance that gives great views across Mounts Bay to St Michael's Mount, the Lizard and Mousehole. In autumn, the Bird Reserve at Marazion attracts rare migrants such as bitterns and water rails. The flocks of swallows hunting flying ants sometimes draw the attention of a passing hobby, an unusual bird of prey.

We did not plan to take this walk, but it was suggested by our B&B host. It rained a bit, but the views were worth the walk. There's a bit of grit leaving Penzance, but the scenery quickly turns to the sea and the sand....More

We actually walked from Mousehole all the way to St Michaels Mount and back and whilst it was much longer than the signs along the way would suggest (17 miles there and back!!) we absolutely loved it. It's such a pleasant, broadly flat, walk. Very...More

Great to see St Michaels Mount getting closer as we walked along the level path round the bay from Penzance. We were able to walk along the shore for a while on our return as the tide was out.
