If you’re planning a beach holiday in Polperro, you’ll find the beach just behind the harbour of the pretty fishing village – and you won’t be disappointed. The sandy beach emerges at low tide and as it’s just behind the harbour it’s easy to get to and spend a few hours enjoying the setting before the tide returns.
Polperro beach is mainly sand and shingle, and it’s a good starting point for a walk along the Cornish coast. Another advantage of this stretch of beach is that it’s so close to the village you’ll have easy access to toilets, cafes and shops while you make the most of a day on the sand.
Polperro remains one of Cornwall’s working fishing villages, so don’t miss the opportunity to sit back and watch the boats coming and going from the harbour as they’ve done for hundreds of years. If you fancy exploring more of the area there are boat trips from Polperro harbour too. There’s good news for pet owners – Polperro’s beach welcomes dogs throughout the year.
