Talland Bay Beach
Between Looe and Polperro, a quietish cove with a great cafe, a pub and parking.
Idyllic beach with a pub and a great cafe which serves proper coffee and hires out kayaks if you’re feeling adventurous. Served by only one small single track road and the south west coast path this is a beach that rarely gets too crowded. Mix of shingle and sand, but the beach is notable for the thousands of unusual flat purple pebbles scattered across the bay. Lively fishing off the east rocks and it’s also a very popular spot for spear fishing, so don’t be alarmed if you suddenly see men emerging on to the beach from the sea clad in wetsuit, speargun and a string of bass hanging from their shoulder
