Tips from locals
St. Micheals Mount is a rare sight. Its not often that you find a castle on a tiny island such as this.
Either accessed by boat or on foot, depending on the tide, this makes for a fantastic day out.
Historic experience in lovely Marazion. You can either walk across the causeway when the tide is out or take the boats/amphi-vehicle. A must see!
Beautiful tidal island with a climb up to a medieval castle and church. There are gardens as well. At the base of the island is a village and harbour, still inhabited by a small community of around 30 people. Great views and very interesting local history. It is all owned by the National Trust, so…
Beautiful, magical, tidal island. Walk across the causeway when the tide is out or take an exciting boat ride across, restaurant available on the island, visit the castle. National Trust.

“Well worth a visit for a bit of art and incredible beach views. The light really is different in St Ives, so it's easy to see why so many artists have been drawn there over the years. ”
