There is a wooded path from Lansallos village down to the secluded beach here, via a steep valley. Alternatively, you can approach via the South West Coast Path, either from Polperro in the east or Lantivet Cove in the west. On arrival, you’ll notice a stone track cut into the rock behind the beach, complete with grooved cart tracks. This is how seaweed was transported to the fields above, for use as fertiliser. Lansallos is a fine swimming beach and there’s an attractive church in the village too, featuring interesting pew ends, as you can see in the photo gallery link, below.
