A marvellous location to sit and watch the world go by. Plenty of benches and very close to the shops, restaurants and bars. The local passenger ferry also operates from here to Mevagissey and also across the river to Polruan.

We hired a boat and toured the estuary which is beautiful. Crabbing from the pontoons is extremely popular with holidaymakers.

Beautiful and busy historical and commercial Cornish estuary port. Loads to do and see, close to many other Cornish attractions such as Eden project. A real gem.
