Marazion Marsh Nature Reserve
Birdlife Cornwall: Marazion Marsh Nature Reserve

Marazion Marsh is an RSPB Reserve near the coast between Penzance and Marazion.

It is a favourite spot for birdwatchers with many species recorded throughout the year.

Eurasian Wigeon, Grey Heron and Little Egret are often seen here.

During the autumn and winter it provides a roost for thousands of starlings who flock here every afternoon at dusk and captivate watchers with their daily murmuration.

Between Penzance and Marazion the Cornwall Coast Path is level making it ideal for a lovely coastal stroll without having to over exert yourself.

The path has wonderful views over Mount's Bay, Long Rock Beach and Marazion with St Michael's Mount off the coast.

The western end of Long Rock Beach between Penzance and the level crossing near Long Rock car park is dog friendly all year round.

From the level crossing to Marazion dogs are only allowed during the Winter (1st October to 30th April). From 1st May to 30th September dogs are only allowed before 8am and after 7pm.

Snow Covered Marazion and St Michael's Mount
Seasonal Nature Cornwall: Snow Covered Marazion and St Michael's Mount

On the last day of February 2018 a most unusual event occurred. Cornwall was hit by heavy snow and blizzards, blanketing towns and villages throughout Cornwall in less than two hours.

At Marazion, the beach was covered with more than an inch of snow and Chapel Rock and St Michael's Mount also went white.

This image was taken on the steps adjacent to the Godolphin Arms.

Walking to the coast path via a public footpath near Prussia Cove.

There's a small car park for Prussia Cove then you walk back up the lane for a short distance until you see a public footpath sign on the left. The path takes you between fields before opening out onto a pasture for sheep. Please keep dogs on a lead and don't worry the sheep.

The view of Mount's Bay with the Mount, Marazion and Penzance stretches before you.

The footpath reaches the coast path at Cudden Point, a stunning headland looked after by the National Trust.

The path can be muddy at times so please wear suitable footwear.

St Michael's Mount lies at the heart of beautiful Mount's Bay.
Seen from Mousehole, Penzance, Perranuthnoe and beyond the Mount is accessed from the ancient market town of Marazion by a causeway at low water and by a ferry service at high tide. You can visit the Mount at any time when the causeway is available.

The castle and gardens have opening times and an admission charge but you can visit the harbour area free of charge and dogs are welcome in the harbour area, where there are shops, cafes and places to sit to enjoy the views.
