POLPERRO

 

  • A family favourite

At low tide the harbour dries revealing a small sand and shingle beach. At the end of a deep and sheltered valley, the west side is better known as Chapel Pool. There is tourist traffic to invade your peacful day out as the car park is at the top of the valley. From the car park is an easy 10 minute walk through the streets, or have a ride on the horse drawn bus service in high season.
