Mevagissey is centred around the busy active fishing harbour which still operates commercially and has an inner and an outer deep water harbour that provides shelter for either leisure craft or yachts. Mevagissey is approximately six miles from the market town of St Austell, which has a wider range of retail amenities and facilities as well as good leisure facilities. Three popular golf courses are situated near to the town and a main railway link from Penzance to Paddington runs from St Austell. The Cathedral city of Truro is approximately 15 miles away.
Bustling restaurants, cafes & many shops line the harbour-side and the narrow streets of Mevagissey.
There are sailing clubs at Porthpean, Pentewan and Fowey – the latter being a particularly interesting and historic town with a deep and natural harbour suitable for larger sailing craft. Nearby Portmellon also has a small boatyard. Road link via the A30 is mainly dual carriageway to the junction with the M5 at Exeter.
Fishing Trips are available from the harbour side.
