Lovely harbour. Parking available at £5 for the day before you get to the harbour. Other short stay carparks at cheaper prices further into mevagissey. We where lucky to arrive early enough to find it less busy. Well worth a visit.

We will never tire of this little fishing village. We found a hotel/tea room to left and up the cliff for about 20 mins. Stunning views whilst having a cream tea. Spend time just wandering or sitting near the quay its worth it every time....More
