Mevagissey (Cornish: 'Lannvorek') is a village and fishing port situated 6 miles from the main town of St Austell.  The village is in a small valley near the centre of east-facing Mevagissey Bay.  The inner and outer harbours are busy with a mixture of pleasure vessels and fishing boats, and there are currently 63 registered fishing boats worked by 69 fishermen.

The village consists of very narrow, picturesque streets with a wide choice of places to dine and relax, as well as local produce shops and shops aimed at the tourist trade.
