There are lots of activities to get involved with around Lantic Bay and Lansallos.

Walking 

This unspoilt coast between Polruan and Polperro is great walking country. The well-maintained coast path can be accessed by a network of other footpaths from inland. You can complete circular walks including coast, cliff, beach and woodland.

Join us for a walk by striding out across the great British countryside.

Play

Have an extra bit of fun as you scamper down to Lansallos beach on the play trail or look for one at Lantic Bay too, hidden just behind the car park.
