Named after two Irish saints, St Meva and

St Issey, the South Cornish village of Mevagissey nestles in a small valley near the centre of east-facing Mevagissey Bay.

Mevagissey is an attractive old town with many narrow streets winding past traditional buildings.  There are plenty of gift shops, craft workshops, galleries, cafe's and pubs and more to explore.

Once the centre of Cornwalls pilchard fishing industry, a fleet of working fishing boats still venture out most days from the harbour.  Fishing trips can be taken from Mevagissey’s harbour including deep sea angling, mackerel and shark fishing.

And why not enjoy the summer weather by taking a ferry from Mevagissey to the nearby port of Fowey.

The focal point of Mevagissey is, of course, the harbour which is flanked by hills. Climb Polkirt Hill for lovely views over the town's switchback streets, the harbour and the yachting pool.

Further out you can see the golden sands of Polstreath Beach and St Austell Bay. To the south is the inlet sheltering Portmellon Beach and the south west coast path over Chapel Point to Gorran Haven.  Much of the coastline on either side of Mevagissey is owned by The National Trust.

If you want to hit the beach then Mevagissey is a great holiday base with numerous sandy coves dotted along the coastline including Polstreath, Caerhays and Gorran Haven, all within a few miles of Mevagissey.

Mevagissey is well placed to explore most of Cornwall, being situated centrally on the South Cornwall coast. The Eden Project is only 7 miles from Mevagissey, while the Lost Gardens of Heligan are very close by.   Other attractions within easy reach from Mevagissey include Caerhays Castle, The World of Model Railways, Mevagissey Harbour Aquarium and Mevagissey Museum.
