Mount's Bay is a magnificent sweep of bay that stretches from Mousehole and Newlyn towards the Lizard. At its center is the magical island of St Michael's Mount, crowned by its striking castle which rises from the sea like a fairytale palace. It is possible to follow the coastal footpath along this beautiful section of Cornwall's south coast to explore rocky coves such as Prussia Cove, Kynance Cove and the historic fishing harbours of Porthleven and Mullion.
St Michael’s Mount is a tidal island and as there are no boats running this year, all visitors must access it by foot. At low tide the causeway opens and all ticket holders can walk across to the island and stay there until the tide comes back in again around four hours later. The harbour village, shops, castle lawns and takeaway outlets will be open for ticket holders to enjoy.
