I've been to the island on many occasions, mainly because of my interest for dowsing, mysteries & legends. There is a special earth energy point on the island where four different earth energy lines (that span the world) cross, creating a powerful node point. More...More

A beautiful walk along the causeway on low tide towards the castle. Walking up to the castle can be a little steep but should be good if you take your time. Enjoy :)

Castle on island connected by causeway only at low tide. Get there early before the closing time for the castle. If the tide is high travel by boat.

We went to St Michael's Mount fairly early in the morning. The tide was still in so we got the boat over! This cost £3 per person, very reasonable! After our visit we then walked back over the causeway, I would recommend doing it this...More

I went in December one year. I think the castle was closed, the other facilities such as restaurant was still open. There is just no boat that ferry you across but if the tide is out you are able to walk along the causeway... More

Cornwall - picking a base for a 4 night stay in August (1 Replies)
We are planning a 4 night visit to Cornwall on a Sunday- Thursday the last week of August 2017 and are finding it hard to settle on a town to stay in. We'd consider 2 nights in 2 towns but would prefer one town for all four nights. We have 2 adults and a 10 and 12 year old and would like to find pretty town with scenic views. We'd like to take some coastal walks and to see Tintagel Castle and St. Michaels Mount, the Lizard Peninsula, and maybe do some cycling (and realize that we may not fit...More

Ok, it will take half a day out of your stay to get here from Bristol and you'll have to allow almost all day to get to London when you leave, so you have four days here. Have you looked at a map to see how far Tintagel is from St Michael's Mount? You need to factor in travelling times and everywhere in Cornwall takes longer to get to than you'd expect (heavy traffic and narrow roads). It's peak season, and will be difficult to find an apartment or house for two two night stays or one four...More

Walking trails - Cornwall (7 Replies)
We will be in Cornwall for a week in May and would like to see and do as much as possible and also do some coastal walks - nothing too strenuous (we are 57 & 58 respectively). Items on our list include St Michaels Mount, the Eden Project, surfing (Newquay maybe?). We have heard that the town of Mousehole is very quaint and worth a visit. Any thoughts and ideas on what to see, where to stay, where to eat, etc would be very gladly received.

Padstow is really good and of course is famous for 'eats' with Rick Stein's enterprises all over town! You can walk the Camel Trail from there (or hire bikes and cycle it). With a car you can easily get from there to the other places on your list. However, it is very popular and busy - if you are looking for somewhere quieter to stay, it might not 'fit' from that point of view. You could always stay at Rock though, and take the ferry across the Camel Estuary to Padstow perhaps!

I agree with Jezzyka about getting to Minack from Newquay. You may be able to get there, but I don't know how you will get back so late at night on public transport. I wanted to go when I was in St. Ives a couple years ago. My only option was to take a tour from a local St. Ives company. Unfortunately, The dates they went to Minack didn't coincide with our schedule. You could look to see if there is a Newquay tour company going to Minack.
