Marazion dishes up a combination of chop and waves. The waves can get big, but Marazion is usually a relatively mellow option.

Local Information

If there's nobody riding here when you arrive it's usually for a good reason. Go careful.

  • Picturesque town with cafe's, pubs and shops.


A whacking great wall running the length of the beach, with a road behind it.
