St Mawes is a sleepy fishing village, though there are more ferries than fishing boats operating out of it these days. There are a handful of restaurants and cafes, a sprinkling of souvenir shops and a number of hotels, all of which have amazing views across the bay to the Lizard and Manacles.
The St Mawes Ferry Company runs a year round service across the Carrick Roads, leaving from Prince of Wales Pier and (in the summer) Customs House Quay. To view the timetable click here.
