Talland Bay Beach

Talland Bay Beach

Talland Bay is a small and quiet place midway between Looe and Polperro. There are two principal beaches in Talland Bay, both are quite small - the one to the west has sand both at high tide and low tide and is good for swimming at both high and low tides.

There are lots of rock pools to be discovered at low tide. The second beach, to the east, is less sandy and is easiest to swim from at high tide. There is a ramp for launching boats on the main beach and small boats can also be launched from the beach near Smugglers Cottage. There are small coves and beautiful natural tidal pools to swim in.

There is limited car parking near the sea - there is a small and free car park adjoining the beach near Smugglers Cottage, and a pay and display car park at The Beach Café. Access to the beach is easy from the parking area and is also suitable for disabled access.
