St Mawes is a charming village located on the east bank of the Fal River and is south facing, and sheltered from most conditions making it the perfect anchorage for yachts that adorn the bay in the summer months. The village is known for its narrow streets, beautiful harbour, and stunning views of the river and the surrounding
countryside. The village is home to several art galleries, shops, and restaurants, as well as a range of water-based activities, such as sailing, kayaking, and paddle boarding.

The castle is now open to the public and offers breathtaking views of the river and the sea. There are 2 beaches in the village both are family-friendly, Summers which is just passed The Idle Rocks Hotel and Tavern which is nestled under the Tresanton Hotel.
