Penzance offers a wide range of holiday activities. Set in the lee of the Land's End Peninsula this bustling seaside resort and market town has a fishing port, harbour, a high street and winding lanes with a selection of interesting shops. For the beach going family, a sweep of open sand from Penzance to Marazion and incidentally one of the best sunshine records in the British Isles. The bay offers sheltered waters for swimmers and is popular for wind surfing and sailing. Both rail and buses serve the town with hoppa buses regularly running to Newlyn and Mousehole for those who prefer not to use a car.
