Walkers will adore the area with plenty of places to explore on foot. It takes about 25 minutes to walk to Penzance along the wide flat sea front passing tranquil sub-tropical gardens and benches for a convenient rest to take in the scenery. The Art Deco lido is an ideal place for a dip complete with its own a café open during the summer months. Walk in the opposite direction passing Newlyn fishing harbour along the coastal pathway to Mousehole. This pretty village with its winding streets, coloured cottages, quaint harbour and small sandy beaches is the perfect place to spend the day or evening.
The historic town of Marazion overlooked by St Michaels Mount perched on its rocky outcrop is worth a visit. You can cross the causeway on foot at low tide or take a small ferry at high water. Marazion is also popular with bird watchers with its wild bird marshes and the area has many National Trust properties and sub-tropical gardens to explore.
