Despite being situated in front of the popular village of Marazion and having ample parking and amenities the beach never really gets that busy.
Mostly sand with a few pebbly patches, Marazion beach is an ideal family beach with safe, clean water, lifeguard patrol, the convinience of the nearby town and a good children's playground located on the green behind.
Perhaps the most striking feature is the view over to St Michael's Mount. Situated just offshore the island castle makes quite an impressive backdrop.
Towards the town end the beach becomes rockier after which there are a series of small rocky coves. It is from this end of the beach that you can walk over to St Michael's Mount at low tide along a stone causeway.
Marazion beach is about a mile long, starting in front of the town and curving round to the Station House pub/restaurant. The bay continues for about another 2 miles becoming Longrock beach and then Eastern Green
