This small, charming beach is always a pleasure to visit. The tide receded to highlight the arc of the bay. You approach the beach down a steep road, rather like Hemmick on the Roseland Peninsula, so there’s a sense of theatre about the experience, as you turn a bend in the lane to see Talland Bay revealed. Highly recommended.

This quiet corner of Cornwall, between Polperro and Looe, sits on one of the best walking stretches of the South West Coast Path, the cliffs here allowing a lofty perspective on the beaches, all the way to Polruan in the West.

This is a charming cove and beach, between Looe and Polperro on the South Coast of Cornwall. Access to the beach, with some parking, a café and toilets is easy and the South West Coast Path passes by. Talland Bay is not commercialised, so it has a pleasant, natural feel. This is a good beach to have a think on, as you look out to the sea.
