About Newlyn

Newlyn is the home of the second largest fishing fleet in the country, contributing millions of pounds to the Cornish economy each year. Vessels of all sizes can be seen here from huge ocean going beam trawlers, long liners, crabbers, to small open boats hidden in the old harbour, used for handlining for mackerel in the bay.

The harbour is contained by a long North Pier with an adjacent fish market, and the shorter South Pier, which forms a 90 degree angle. The harbour entrance is 150 ft wide. There are four piers available for berthing, with a total space of 730 metres.
