Fishing trips, activities

Mevagissey is all about the sea and there are lots of ways to explore it, from self-hire boats, powerboat trips, fishing trips to rock pooling or paddleboarding. 

Hurley Books, activities

We have an excellent range of independent retailers who offer a wide diversity of services. We have gift shops, a bookshop, artist galleries, jewellers, fashion retail, as well as a greengrocer, fish stand and sweet shops.

Rhodos, activities

Mevagissey is home to Britain’s Favourite Garden, The Lost Gardens of Heligan. One mile outside of Mevagissey it looks out over the village and sea. Here you can enjoy acres of well maintained Victorian gardens, diverse wildlife, jungle walkways and beautiful food prepared with vegetables grown in the formal kitchen gardens. We are also lucky enough to be close to the world famous Eden Project about 10 miles away.

Aquarium, activities

Within the village are a range of excellent places to visit with something to please every visitor; including an aquarium, museum, model railway and church.

kayaks

Mevagissey is ideally placed on the south coast in mid Cornwall. So much of Cornwall is within an hour’s drive, that you may as well spend a few days exploring.

Eat, drink and be merry

We are blessed with six great pubs in the heart of Mevagissey. Each has its own personality and each is well worth a visit.

There is a great range of cafes in the village, some are licensed, some have great views, some run evening events. Some do all.  All seem to do great hot chocolates.

We have a small range of restaurants that specialise in fine dining. Seafood is often a speciality. Straight from the sea on to your plate!

Can you think of anywhere better to eat than out in the fresh air watching the boats go by? 

Somewhere to sleep

There is a wide range of accommodation with something to suit everyone. We have a range of B&B’s and hotels within the village which pride themselves on the highest standards.

There is a huge range of self-catering accommodation catering to every budget and need. Many are dog friendly. Most are available year round but have a minimum seven day booking in high season.

Beyond Mevagissey are a variety of campsites. They range from a tent in a field to fully serviced sites with private swimming pools.

We welcome visiting yachts and will do our very best to accommodate them. Berths are available on the South pier, which is safe as long as the wind is not in the East. If wind is from the East and over force 3, it is strongly recommended to proceed to Fowey. In addition there are two trots of fore and aft cylindrical visitors’ buoys situated inside the harbour entrance, located on the north and south sides.

Fresh water is available from the inner harbour, however visiting boats must ask permission from the Harbour Office before entering the inner harbour. Visiting craft must not moor in the inner harbour.

For bilge keel yachts and twin hulls that can take the beach safely there is normally space available on the Sandy Beach on the east side of the West Quay.

Showers are available on the West Quay. Keys are available from the Harbour Office or a member of staff. The harbour master can be contacted on VHF channel 16, using channel 14 as a working channel, or telephone:
