Mevagissey

Mevagissey - is very much a traditional Cornish fishing village, The name originates in the old Cornish dialect for "Meva-ag-issey", which means "the towns of Meva and Issey". Meva and Issey were two 6th century Irish missionaries who came to convert the area to Christianity.

 

 

The streets of this unspoilt town are a delightful twisting hodge-podge of whitewashed buildings lining narrow passageways.

Mevagissey is a working fishing port, though visitors can hire boats for trips around the bay. For a bit more active adventure, book a shark fishing outing or deep sea fishing trip at the pier. If you prefer to stay on dry land there is excellent walking on the cliff tops above the town (and the views of town and sea are superb!).
