Lansallos Beach, or ‘West Coombe,’ is an idyllic and beautifully wild Cornish cove of sand and shingle, dramatic cliffs, turquoise waters, and a picturesque waterfall called which it is said used to power a small mill nearby.
Owned and managed by the National Trust, this tranquil sheltered bay is just a few miles west of the ancient fishing village of Polperro. It is reached by walking down an uneven path from the NT carpark in Lansallos village (Do not park by the church), once used by smugglers to bring their goods inland.
The beach has no facilities.
Please keep dogs under control.
