Magnificent coastal village
Mevagissey's a magnificent harbour village on the eastern coast of Cornwall. It's one of the most impressive we've seen in years of exploring the county. The village is also in an ideal location to discover other Cornish destinations and attractions.

Harbour and South West Coast Path
Mevagissey's main attraction is its Harbour. Packed with boats, the harbour leads to The Pool with its pincer-like walls that protect the village from the sea. We'd recommend walking to the Mevagissey Lighthouse on one of these walls. Whilst exploring the harbour, visit Mevagissey Museum and Mevagissey Aquarium.

If you're looking to stretch your legs, follow the South West Coast Path north from the village. You'll pass Polstreath Beach on your way to a headland that provides stunning views down to Pentewan Sands and across Mevagissey Bay.

Local attractions
The wonderful The Lost Gardens of Heligan are to the north west of Mevagissey. The Eden Project is to the north. We'd recommend highly a trip to Charlestown and Wheal Martyn China Clay Country Park in the Cornish Alps.

If you fancy a trip to sea, hop on the Fowey/Mevagissey Ferry. There's more information about Fowey here.

Explore other areas
To the south west is the The Roseland Peninsula. Inland, to the west, is Truro. To the north east are Falmouth and Looe.

Given that Cornwall's a skinny county, it's an easy day trip from Mevagissey to Padstow and Newquay, St. Ives and Falmouth.
