Very small cove backed by beautiful little Cornish fishing village.

Tiny ancient cottages appear almost to be tottering into the sea at high tide, and there's a smuggler's museum and a shell fronted house. Well worth a visit.

Polperro Beach is on the Gribbin Head - Polperro Heritage Coast, and adjacent to the South West Coast Path.
