The ground floor of an art deco inspired architect designed house, with sea views and a commanding position above Mount's Bay, Beach Haven feels like it was a million miles from everyone and everything, but it's really only a five minute stroll to the centre of pretty coastal village of Marazion, which has a delightful selection of pubs, shops, galleries, restaurants and the entrance to the world famous St Michael's Mount.
Browse the Sunday morning papers over hot Cornish buttered toast and plan the day's activities, spend your day on the golden crescent shaped beach or explore further afield towards the Lizard with its picturesque views or the wild landscape of the Land's End peninsula.

St Michael’s Mount sits majestically on an island out at sea and can be reached via a cobbled causeway at low tide or at other times by the 'St Michael' amphibious vehicle!

Conveniently located a moment away from the world famous St Michael's Mount, Marazion beach is found in the heart of Mounts Bay, recently elected as one of the 'most beautiful bays in the world'. It’s the perfect beach for family holidays in Marazion, with cafés just above the sand, lifeguards on hand and clean and safe waters. Despite its beauty and convenience for holiday makers, it remains surprisingly quiet compared to other Cornish beaches. It’s perfect for beach and sea sports and you can even take your horse for a quick gallop across the sands! The long sandy beach that stretches towards Long Rock is a popular windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing spot amongst locals and holiday makers alike. Mounts Bay provides ideal conditions for watersports, and kite surfing and stand up paddleboarding lessons are available with Ocean High for those looking to make the most of the outdoors.

We had a fabulous break in October. We felt that even in high season Beach Haven would seem like it was a million miles from everyone and everything but we were within five minutes walk of the centre of Marazion. Loved it and without a doubt would recommend to all!!!
The cream tea on arrival was a lovely Cornish touch.

Mrs Somerset Jul 2015
Reply from Aspects Holidays
We really appreciate you reviewing this property. Beach Haven is a lovely apartment that is located a short stroll down a hill into Marazion. It is quite a steep and narrow shared access road for your car which we have stated on the website in our additional information. This may not be suitable access for everyone, though the parking facility is a great bonus where parking can be a little limited in Marazion, especially in peak weeks. Tanya, Customer Services.
