Polkerris Beach

Polkerris Beach – PL24 2TL.
Polkerris is a tiny hamlet, west of Fowey, down a winding lane past Kilmarth, the last home of Daphne du Maurier. It is also the next cove to Menabilly, the long-time home of the author. Polkerris is a sandy beach which gently shelves, sheltered by harbour wall.

There is also another small beach called Booley Beach which can be reached via a ten-minute walk on the coast path. There are no facilities at Booley Beach. Note that the Polkerris car park is often full in late summer so arrive early.

There are two excellent eateries at Polkerris, ‘Sam’s on the Beach’ and ‘The Rashleigh Inn’. Both well worth a visit. Find out more.
