Moderate - Coastal path, inland footpaths which may be wet or muddy, quiet roads, only gentle ascent and descent.
An inland walk to Penzance, following St Michael's Way across Marazion Marsh, which is particularly popular with over-wintering birds. It is an excellent place for catching Britain's earliest swifts and swallows, as well as occasional rare spring migrants such as hoopoes and spoonbills. The return route to Marazion follows the South West Coast Path along the sandy beach which has been used as the backdrop to many films and television series based on the novels of Cornish author Rosamunde Pilcher.
