Talland Bay – PL13 2RY
Located midway between Looe and Polperro are the secluded twin coves of Talland Bay. This section of the Cornish coast is surprisingly unspoilt and is designated both an Area of Outstanding Beauty and a Heritage Coast. Both towns are within easy walking distance via the Southwest Coast Path and both beaches are ideal for families to spend the day on beach and a pleasant alternative to Looe. There is also the excellent Talland Bay Beach Café and Smugglers Rest. Where paddleboards and Kayak can be hired along with anything you need for the beach. Find out more.
