This inshore marine conservation zone (MCZ) was designated on 21 November 2013.
The Manacles MCZ is an inshore site located on the southern coast of Cornwall which covers a total area of approximately 3.5 km2. The MCZ extends 2 km from the coastline to encompass a series of large underwater rocky outcrops known as The Manacles.
New features have been added to this site. This is because we have new evidence to support their designation.
