GLORIOUS BEACHES are within easy striking distance:

Our favourite is Polridmouth, situated below Menabilly, the inspiration for Daphne du Maurier’s book “Rebbecca”. Accessible by footpath or by boat, this is an idyllic spot, where families for generations have spent happy days rockpooling, playing cricket and swimming in the shallow waters. A magical spot for a sunny summer evening, around driftwood barbeques…The adventure begins with the small car Ferry across the river from Boddinick to Fowey!

Tucked around the next bay is another gem of a beach; Polkerris Beach. ( ). This is a sheltered sandy beach, with a picturesque harbour wall, moorings for boats and a well equipped water sports facility. RYA recognised lessons in sailing and windsurfing can be booked. All this, plus the wonderful Sam’s on the Beach Restaurant and Rashleigh Inn pub for delicious food while your children play!

Lansallos Beach is a tiny hidden secret of a perfect smuggler’s cove; dramatic in winter and a suntrap in summer. You get to the beach via a well maintained footpath (1/2 mile). It is never crowded, and perfect for picnics.

At low tide the rockpools are full interesting things, but not so good for swimming as the currents can be strong.

  Talland Bay is a slightly further drive, but it is worth it! For those with very little children it is well served by a lovely little café and shop, safe paddling and swimming and lots of rock pools.

In Fowey, Readymoney Beach is another perfect sandy and safe spot for tiny children. You can park nearby in the Fowey public car park, and the restaurants and shops of Fowey are within 10 minutes’ walk.

For those who enjoy a challenge, Lantic Bay is undoubtedly the most beautiful of all the surrounding beaches – a long stretch of golden sand provides space and beauty for a glorious day in the sun. It feels like you have stumbled across a well kept secret! But it is accessed only by boat or a very steep footpath, which is not for the fainthearted at the end of a long day! Consult an OS map to find it from the Coastal Path, or the nearby National Trust car park - and don’t carry too much kit!
