    Take Your Own Boat

    by Geoff_Wright Written Nov 9, 2013

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A great way to see Mevagissey is by arriving in your own boat. There are a few moorings inside the Outer Harbour (these are fore and aft moorings), but you may have to raft up in the high season. One set are just inside the entrance, on the right, and another set are over the far side adjacent to the quayside and near the aquarium. Fees are very modest, and there are facilities ashore for sailors.

    Nothing nicer than sitting in your boat when the sun is setting, eating fish and chips!

    If you have time to spare, why not take the ferry from Mevagissey to Fowey, and return. The Ferry runs throughout the year, and in the summer months there are up to 6 sailings a day, the most being from the middle of July until early September. The ferry operates from the Western breakwater (Lighthouse Quay), and the journey takes about 35 minutes.

    Fares: Adult - single £8.00. Return £14.00. Child - single £4.00. Return £7.00. (As at Summer 2013). You purchase your ticket on board the ferry. Dogs go free!

    The closest to the quay of 3 car parks within Mevagissey although care is required if you drive a very wide car, due to the very narrow streets, this is an open air ground level car park.

    Cornwall has got very steep hills and narrow roads in places so be aware,take you time no point in rushing you wont get their any quicker,if traveling at peak period do not be surprised to find your journey taking 2hrs longer than you expected.
    Remember Cornwall is the English Riviera and can get very busy .
    But be assured it will be worth it ,crystal clear water and breathtaking views.

    Bus or car?

    by Geoff_Wright Written Sep 3, 2003

    Most visitors to Mevagissey will arrive by car. The town is not really large enough to accommodate modern day traffic, and you would be advised not to try and drive through it, unless you are passing through, on the coastal road.

    On entering Mevagissey there is a large car park on the lefthand side, and only a few minutes' walk from the harbour. The car park does get full quite quickly in the summertime, so arrive early, or late! The fees are quite steep at £2.00 for 2 hours (other various rates apply). There is parking on the quayside, but it's very narrow and restricted. Personally, I'd rather park in the main car park. You will not be able to park anywhere else in the town, so don't go looking for spaces!!

    There is public transport, from St Austell, and it seems to run at quite regular intervals.
