HOME

Lansallos is a terrific place for walkers, and is well known as a top beauty spot.  The actual village of Lansallos is very tiny, with only a few old cottages, but very scenic.  Below, we show the main walk down the sunken lane to the beach and the coastal footpaths leading from the beach.

Lansallos. A real walkers paradise.  Start the walk from the old Church which is just a few 100 yards from the holiday cottages.  By the church  (1) & (2)  you will see the entrance to a pretty,  sunken footpath (3) & (4). Continue along  the footpath.  There are other footpaths  leading  from the main footpath but carry on  down to the gate (5) which is right at the end of the footpath.  Go through the gate and the field and Lansallos  beach will be in front of you.  One of the entrances to the  beach  is obscured but will be on your left.  The other part of the beach will be on your right, the access being next to the pretty little waterfall (6). Facing the sea, take the uphill footpath (7) on your right (the Cornwall coastal path). Walk along the coastal footpath for about forty minutes  (8) to the small sandy beach at Atlantic Bay. The beach is also accessible by road, with a car park, so you can be fetched by car at the end of your walk!  You can also walk  for 3 miles in the opposite  direction along the coastal path to Polperro.
