Lantic Bay

Accommodation  -  Map  -  Fowey  -  (back to all beaches)

If you're looking for somewhere away from it all, yet still only a few miles from all the facilities you'll ever need, Lantic Bay may be the place for you.


Tucked away between Polruan and Polperro, access can only be found by following the South West Coast Path. The walk is worth it though and it's no surprise that many call Lantic Bay Cornwalls best kept secret!


Depending on what time of year you visit, Lantic Bay beach can often be deserted and therefore offer some degree of privacy.


Lantic Bay is only accessible by foot! Follow the coastpath from Polruan, or alternatively follow the coast path from PolperroSteps involved so not suitable for the infirm or less able-bodied. You can also use the NT car park a mile east of Polruan and follow the well-marked footpath
