An easy saunter to Marazion, linked by causeway to St Michael's Mount, once a Benedictine Priory and later a medieval fort. The return route along St Michael's Way travels across Marazion Marsh, which is particularly popular with over-wintering birds and an excellent place for catching Britain's earliest swifts and swallows, as well as unusual spring migrants such as hoopoes and spoonbills. This stretch of the South West Coast Path has been used as the backdrop to many films and television series based on the novels of Cornish author Rosamunde Pilcher.
