MEVAGISSEY HOLIDAYS

Boat-building, Feast Week and the smallest aquarium

Visit Mevagissey

Just south of St Austell lies Mevagissey, a bustling, traditional fishing village with shops, restaurants and olde-worlde pubs. The twin harbour is busy with both pleasure cruises and fishing trips and a great place to relax, shoot the breeze with the local fishermen and watch the world go by. The village was built on an ancient tradition of boat-building that has remained unbroken since the mid-18th Century.

An ancient fishing village with a long history of boat building, Polruan is situated on the Polperro Heritage Coast. This village in South Cornwall has a distinct charm about it with many old buildings along the quay.

An olde-worlde village

In a village with an active fishing community, there’s no shortage of delicious fish-based meals. The pubs, such as The Ship Inn and The Fountain Inn offer a warm welcome, and restaurants include the wonderfully-named The Sharksfin and the Salamander! In June every year, the village celebrates Feast Week with street entertainers and fairground rides.

You’re spoilt for choice for things to do in this Cornish village. The village boasts one of the smallest aquariums in the county where you can discover local species, or if you prefer the outdoors, Portmellon Beach is a beach that gets reclaimed daily by the sea, leaving rock pools teeming with life.
