Walks around Lantic Bay and Lansallos

Download a range of walks from a leisurely 1 mile to the challenging rollercoaster route from Polruan to Polperro.

    Polruan Coast and Creek walk

    Travelling high above Lantic Bay, with spectacular views over its wide shingle beaches and clear turquoise waters to Gribbin Head, this energetic walk circles the mouth of the Fowey Estuary. It takes in some of Polruan's many historic features before looping around above the tranquil Pont Pill creek to the quay at Pont Pill, returning to the car park via Lanteglos Church.

    Polruan to Polperro Rollercoaster walk

    A strenuous rollercoaster walk high above turquoise seas and white sandy beaches, through prime fishing and smuggling territory with a fine heritage of tales and legends. The National Trust owns most of the land and its conservation methods have encouraged an abundance of wildflowers and butterflies.

    Blackbottle Picnic walk

    This is a short but beautiful jaunt along the South West Coast Path. Take in stunning views of Gribbin Head and, on a clear day, the coast all the way down to the Lizard. The walk’s halfway point is a perfect place to sit and watch the boats come in and out of Fowey.

    Lansallos coastal and woodland walk

    This magnificent stretch of coastline has no 20th-century intrusions detracting from the natural splendour of secluded coves and beaches.  Slightly inland, the soft rolling hills separate the coast from farmland and the sunken lane at Lansallos Cove conjures up images of smugglers and wreckers hauling carts laden with contraband.
