Things to do in and around Mevagissey
You could easily spend your entire holiday exploring the narrow streets around the harbour, fishing for crabs off the harbour wall, and visiting Mevagissey's small but interesting museum and aquarium, but there's even more to explore around the town itself.
Mevagissey is only 17 km from The Eden Project, home to two massive greenhouses recreating plant habitats from around the world.
