Discover St Mawes 

St Mawes is the principal village on the Roseland Peninsula, situated on the mouth of the Percuil River. An important port in medieval times and now a picturesque harbour with a small fishing fleet, it is protected by the most perfectly preserved of Henry VIII's coastal fortresses, St Mawes Castle. The village remains a centre for a range of watersports activities and offers two fine sandy beaches. In St Mawes you will find a range of pubs, cafes and restaurants, and some interesting shops and galleries.

Things to do in St Mawes

  • Visit St Mawes Castle by taking a walk past the harbour 
  • Check out local art galleries and craft shops 
  • Hire a kayak at St Mawes Kayaks and Water Taxis, get safety instructions, and explore the estuary 
  • St Mawes is linked to Falmouth by the St Mawes Ferry which runs year round across the harbour. Enterprise Boats run regular services to Truro from May to September. During the summer months, a small passenger ferryboat links St Mawes to Place on the remote St Anthony headland, enabling visitors to visit the small church behind Place Manor, the St Anthony Lighthouse and St Anthony Battery, as well as enjoying a pleasant circular walk 
  • It is an easy 2 mile coastal walk from St Mawes Castle to St Just in Roseland Church, described by Sir John Betjeman as being “to many people the most beautiful churchyard on earth.”
