A Wild and Quiet Cornish Landscape
Lansallos Beach (also known as West Coombe) is a quiet, attractive, south-facing cove of sand and rocks just a few miles west of Polperro.
There is a small waterfall on the western side of the beach known as Reed Water which used to power a small mill.
There is a National Trust car park in Lansallos village (free to members) with footpath access to the beach beside the church. It's around a 20-minute walk down a delightful track, beside the stream, with activity points for children. Other paths lead from the National Trust campsite at Highertown Farm, across the fields and down the coombe.
There are no facilities at the beach, with the nearest public toilets being at Lantivet Bay (Frogmore) car park.
For the adventurous this Cove is the perfect lunch stop for those walking the South West coastal path from Polperro.
