Getting out to Lantic Bay

cattle grazing at Pencarrow Head, Lantic

Climb down to the beach, or enjoy the cliff top views at Lantic Bay and Pencarrow Head.


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.

When you arrive at Lantic Bay car park, see if you can find the play trail hidden up on the grass bank under the trees. You can also have an extra bit of fun as you scamper down to Lansallos beach on the play trail down the path from the village to the beach.


Take a paddle in the sea at Lantic, the water is usually crystal blue and refreshing. The bay is off the beaten track, so bring a picnic so you can stay a little longer and to give you fortification to get back up the hill again at the end of the day.

The bay isn't lifeguarded, so make sure you stay safe and check the tide and weather conditions.

Have a great beach day
