Polkerris beach (a privately owned beach) can be found nestled inbetween Fowey and Par on the south Cornish coastline. Not a particularly large beach but it offers plenty of local facilities like kayaking, windsurfing, etc as well as other watersports too.


There is also a lovely pub; the Rashleigh Inn, and a cafe; Sams on the Beach,  situated right on the edge of the beach, and the facilities offered here are very good.


A sheltered beach with no through traffic, it can also be reached via the South West Coast Path from Par, or alternatively from Fowey, passing around the headland from St Catherine's Castle.


Polkerris beach can be found from the A3082 between Par to Fowey.
