Revised Yacht Moorings
Written by thefenderboss | 22nd May 2024
We visited on the boat in August 2023 and have visited by car since. What used to be two fore and aft trots, one either side of the entrance, has been reduced to one trot of about 5 or 6 on the port side as you enter. They seem close to the rocks and it is a bit tight when picking up the first and swinging towards the shore but pick up the windward buoy first and all should be fine.

Toilet and shower are basic but functional and the harbour staff very helpful

In July 2022 the shower and toilet at the Harbour Master’s office were out of service. The public toilets in the village (50p) are locked between early evening and early morning.

I reviewed these notes in April of 2021. The price has changed at Mevagissey but little else. Please note Conrad's comment below re beaching at Gorran Haven
Goran Haven Beach
Written by Conrad ryle | 1st Aug 2018
The beach is small and very crowded in summer. Not really appropriate for bilge keelers, and the harbour master, a nice guy, would be quite put out. But anchoring outside is easy and the trip to the beach, where you should leave your tender to the east of the local moorings, is pleasant. The walk towards Dodman point takes you to Vault beach, a lovely place.

You may find evidence of storm damage here in the early summer but otherwise there doesn't seem to be much change here.

Update Spring 2016
Written by dononshytalk | 4th May 2016
These notes were reviewed by Don in May 2016. There are, now, more visitors buoys in Mevagissey but their price remains unaltered. Note that they can no longer bunker leisure yachts with diesel. Charlestown has changed ownership but basically remains the same.

Update 2013
Written by dononshytalk | 30th Jan 2013
The Mevagissey harbour notes were updated by Don T on the 30th January 2013. The only change was the price of mooring in the harbour.
