The town still retains its traditional feel to this day, and still has a thriving fishing industry. It is a popular pitstop for tourists, not least because of its proximity to The Lost Gardens of Heligan, several miles outside the town, one of the many famous gardens in the county of Cornwall. Like Mousehole, Mevagissey is charming at Christmas, with festive lights arranged at strategic points around the harbour.
