Cornwall’s south coast offers an incredible seaside setting, filled with incredible scenery and amazing attractions. Between Mevagissey and Charlestown, you will find some of Cornwall’s finest activities with something for everyone to enjoy.

Here are a few recommendations for the best things to see and do in and around Mevagissey and Charlestown, with seasonal events, activities and much more to enjoy.

Charlestown Regatta Week

With plenty to enjoy both on and off the water, Regatta Week offers an incredible spectacle, with bright sails and all kinds of events.

Enjoy live music, competitions, pasty demonstrations, raft races, water sports and classic favourites such as the children’s sports, Grand Carnival and flora dance procession. There’s no better start to summer.

Mevagissey Feast Week

‘Meva Feast Week’ takes place at the end of June and offers an incredible festival of fun – and food! Enjoy live music, exhibitions, children's entertainment and competitions.

During the week you can also take part in colourful parades, boat and raft races and enjoy the renowned firework display.

Charlestown Shipwreck Centre

This fascinating attraction features over 8,000 sunken finds from shipwrecks all over the world – including the only intact barrel of coins to ever to be recovered from a shipwreck! You can even see some treasures from the waters around Charlestown.

The recovered artefacts date from Ancient Egypt to modern day discoveries with some incredible tales to be told.

Mevagissey to Fowey Ferry

Arrive in style on your trip to Fowey by travelling over the waters on this local ferry. Not only can you enjoy some coastal scenery, but you might spot some of the wonderful local wildlife too.

Not only can humans enjoy a trip on the ferry but dogs go free, so if you’re treating your four-legged friend to a break then look no further.

Lost Gardens of Heligan

These gorgeous gardens offer a wonderful visitor experience, filled with lush flora and incredible sights. Take a wander and you can explore woodland trails, discovering sculptures along the way, while younger members of the party enjoy adventure playgrounds.

The story behind the Lost Gardens is equally entertaining, and there are few better places to enjoy Cornwall’s inviting climate.
