Polperro Cornwall England

Polperro on the south-east coast of Cornwall is a pituresque fishing village. Fishing was the main economy but now it is tourism. The village is situated by the River Pol and has many narrow streets and the harbour is surrounded by fisherman's houses.

Polperro Heritage Museum

Talland Bay
3 miles from Polperro. An ideal spot if you want to get away from everything. There are two small beaches in Talland Bay, one to the west of the midpoint of the bay, near to the public toilets, has sand with rockpools at low tide. The other beach is approx. 200m to the east, it is less sandy and easiest to swim from at high tide.
The Cornwall Coast Path from here leads to Looe in the east – approx. 3 miles or to the west Polperro both giving great views.
