Mevagissey is a picturesque fishing village situated on the stunningly beautiful south coast of Cornwall.
Dating back to the 14th Century, Mevagissey is an eternally popular holiday destination. With twin working harbours, gorgeous cottages and its bustling streets to explore, and offering an eclectic mix of craft and gift shops, Megavissey will appeal to every visitor. Dine at a variety of waterfront restaurants and pubs and you can enjoy the freshly caught local fish. Close by is the outstanding South West Coastal Path, with its breathtaking views to Polstreath beach or Portmellon cove.
Pleasure cruises from the harbour offer a distinctly relaxing tour of the area. And if you fancy trying your hand at mackerel fishing, why not take the opportunity right here, while enjoying glorious views of this stunning coastline?
Mevagissey is the ideal location from which to explore Cornwall's finest tourist attractions. The world famous Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are close by, as is the wonderful Georgian port of Charlestown. And why not visit the nearby Parish of Gorran Haven too? Truly a gem of Cornwall, with village beaches that are ideal for the whole family to enjoy.
At the end of June, Mevagissey celebrates Feast Week, a Cornish tradition based upon the celebrations of St Peter’s Day on 29 June (St Peter being the Patron Saint of fishermen). The week-long festival features a host of local events, music, dance and processions.
We believe that your visit to Mevagissey will be a holiday experience you will cherish for years to come! We look forward to welcoming you.
