Season: spring

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.

Season: spring

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.

Season: autumn

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.

One thought on “Talland Bay

  1. Pat

    Talland Bay, a beautiful cove nestled between the cliffs of Looe and Polperro, means so much to me, as I watch my grandchildren playing in the gentle waves, then off to explore the rock pools, their happy little faces as they show me what they have found, brings back such memories, as I reflect back on my childhood with my parents. These moments I like sharing with all my guests, as I direct them to Talland Bay to experience the same moments as I do;
    come sit awhile and share with me, enjoy this quaint unspoilt cove found at the bottom of Talland Valley.
