Fowey (pronounced /ˈfɔɪ/) is a cargo port at the mouth of the river Fowey not far from Falmouth in Cornwall.

Apart from big cargo ships, quite a number of small sailing vessels visit Fowey; in particular it's one of the default destinations for the boats of sailing courses based in Falmouth.

Several floating pontoons are available for visitors, with water taxi usually used to reach the town.
