Attraction details
Owner description: A 5.4 mile moderate coastal walk along the South West Coast Path taking in a holy legend, a 6th century monastery, an 18th century eccentric and a 19th century engineer. There are rockpools on the beaches, remnants of shipwrecks, tales of smugglers, and the walk ends with a stroll up through the picturesque fishing village of Polperro to Crumplehorn, where you can catch a bus back to Looe.

Lovely walk along the coastal path. Had a meal in the pub then took the bus back to Looe to shake it up a bit....great way to spend a few leisurely hours on holiday

“SUPERB walk - best ever!”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Coast walk with stunning views and a great reward of the idyllic village of Polperro in the end. Well marked - make sure to pit stop at the Smuggler Cafe in Talland Bay! And hope for sunshine.

“Unmissable”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

The walk is along a well maintained cliff path. Talland Bay is a great stopping place, there's a nice cafe with outdoor seating. It's also a good place to have a midway swim. I think an awful lot of walkers ask to fill their water bottles at the cafe - the staff are willing but more willing if you buy a drink. I saw baby rabbits when I did the walk. It isn't strenuous but if you set a good pace you will deserve your cream tea afterwards!

“slightly more than moderate”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

lovely walk - some very steep parts especially talland bay area in and out. Further on nearer to Looe, where the cliff path has been damaged also new path takes you up some steep stairs and of course back down! but good none the less.

You can take a boat over and then walk back. Great sea views. Beautiful countryside. Can stop at Talland bay for an ice cream.
