Fowey is a very picturesque town on a beautiful estuary. In the summer
the harbour is full of yachts and a variety of visiting boats.
Local boatmen offer trips up the river to Golant, Lerryn, and Lostwithiel
(when the tides are right) and Polperro and Looe (weather dependant).
There are ferries to Bodinnick, Polruan and Mevagissey and boat trips out to Looe Island. Wildlife is prolific
and Basking Sharks and Dolphins are not uncommon.
Fowey has a good selection of pubs where the food is very good and
children and dogs are welcome, as well as a variety of restaurants
to suit all tastes and price ranges.
