Things for you to do in and around Polperro and Cornwall

Coast Path Walks


Come to the beach anywhere in the South West of England, turn left or right and you’ll be on the South West Coast Path and on the edge of an amazing experience.

Walk – Talland Bay from Polperro

3.7 miles

Moderate – On footpaths and quiet country lanes, which may be muddy. There are stretches of both ascent and descent, occasionally steep.

A short walk along the Coast Path to the smugglers’ bay at Talland, where the nineteenth-century vicar danced around the graveyard at night ‘exorcising ghosts’ to keep people away so that the smugglers could hide their haul in the church! The walk starts in the picturesque fishing village of Polperro, with its narrow streets of tiny cottages and ancient steps carved in the rocks above the cave on the beach. Allow time to pause in the Heritage Museum en route for its tales of the smugglers and fishermen in Polperro’s colourful past.
