Fishing Villages & Harbours
The Lizard Peninsula is home to some of the most authentic and picturesque fishing harbours in Cornwall famous for Pilchard Fishing and Smuggling. Today these fishing villages provide wonderful places to relax and spend some time visiting local galleries, shops, tea rooms and harbour side pubs. All are within a short drive of Mullion Cove Hotel and can be visited by car or on foot via the coastal path
Situated beneath Mullion Cove Hotel, Mullion Harbour is for many the ‘jewel in the crown’ of fishing harbours on the Lizard Peninsula with it’s timeless tranquillity and authenticity providing the perfect little Cornish fishing harbour now owned by the National Trust.

One of the most picturesque working fishing villages on the Lizard Peninsula where thatched cob cottages spill down the steep hillside to the harbour. The original Huer’s Hut and old fisherman’s chapel can still to be seen on the cliff edge.
