Outside of tourist season there is no transport to the mount during high tide. Days with high water levels the castle is closed the whole day.

Reached via a beautiful cobbled causeway, looking out to island gives you a stunning view. The photographs in all conditions look great. The attraction is currently closed for some building work, but you can still go over at low tide and check out the small...More

Walking to St Michael's Mount depends on the tide. I'd suggest + or - 3 hours around low tide. So check tide tables for the day you wish to visit.
