Lansallos Beach (also known as West Coombe) is a quiet, attractive, south facing cove of sand and rocks just a few miles west of Polperro. There is a small waterfall on the western side of the beach known as Reed Water which used to power a small mill.
Access - There is a National Trust car park in Lansallos village (free to members) with footpath access to the beach from beside the church. It's around a 20 minute walk down a delightful track, beside the stream with activity points for children. Other paths lead from the National Trust campsite at Highertown Farm, across the fields and down the coombe.
Lansallos is owned and looked after by the National Trust and is able to care and conserve areas like this thanks to their members, volunteers and donors.
