Quaint village, lovely morning pottering around "nicnac " shops . Predominantly for tourists, you can get some lovely glass,jewelry etc,partake of a pasty and then enjoy a boat trip to a variety of places.

You could just sit here for hours watching activity in the estuary, plenty of choice for food etc nearby. You can park on the edge of fowey & walk/bus to & from the harbour

Amazing views all around the estuary. Boat trips around the coast are great and sea taxi to village opposite is well priced and convenient.
