Description MEVAGISSEY is one of the most charming fishing ports of the South Cornish Coast, its white and colour-washed dwellings perched on the slopes of the hills encircling the two harbours. Many of the old fish cellars in the picturesque village have been converted to modern use but their old strong walls and the unspoilt appearance of the narrow streets retain the character of old Mevagissey which is so enchanting to the holiday visitor. Fishing still remains one of the chief occupations of local people and visitors interested in fishing will be glad to know that many of the hundreds of boats bobbing in the harbour are available for deep sea angling and shark fishing. mackerel fishing trips around the bay are popular.Mevagissey, comes from 'Meva and Issey'. The town of St. Meva and St. Issey were first recorded as a hamlet in 1313, however there were settlements in the locality long before that date as is shown by the uncovering of two Bronze Age Burial Urns at Portmellon.
