Newlyn is in Mounts Bay near the tip of Cornwall. It is primarily a fishing port and the port was improved with a grant from the EU which restricted the development to be for fishing not leisure yachting and that restriction shows. The main advantage is that it is all tide and all weather with a narrow entrance which keeps out the Atlantic swells.
One disadvantage is that you need a careful look-out as you go in for large fishing boats coming out which are hidden by the large walls. The other disadvantage is the shower facility. Back in 2014 there was one, in the corner of another (lockable) room which is used for storage, clearly the floor had been extensively walked over in by men in fishing boots but the shower cubicle itself had been kept clean. The pubs in the village were not set up to cater for tourists, more for locals but there was a popular fish and chip shop serving good sized portions of very fresh fish.
