Mevagissey is a charming fishing village on Cornwalls southern coast. Mevagissey's fishing fleet was once a key part of the Cornish pilchard fishing industry and even these days colourful fishing boats work out of this picture postcard like harbour.
You'll find a number of charming B and B's in the village as well as quaint self catering holiday cottages.
In the 18th century the village had a darker side being associated with both smuggling and wrecking and since those days has grown from a tiny hamlet to the strong local cummunity that it is today.
Take a tip and leave your car on the edge of the village when you visit and explore the winding lanes with their fascinating shops, pubs and delightful restaurants by foot.
During the summer months a ferry service operates from Mevagissey to Fowey across St Austel Bay which makes a great day out or why not head inland just over a mile or so and discover the spectacular Lost Gardens of Heligan.
The Eden Project at St Austell is just a short drive away and must not be missed when visiting Mevagissey.
