Gorgeous beach, peaceful and not too busy, beautiful views from the surrounding hills. Access is narrow but there is a car park at the bottom so easy to access with young children. Lovely cafe next to beach with good selection of refreshments and ice creams.

The Smugglers at Talland Bay is fabulous, stopped for refreshments on the walk then drove back again and had a fantastic lunch, well worth doing and very good value too.

A lovely walk from the cafe at Talland bay to the Giant's Hegde. 'One Day the Devil had nothing to do, so he made a hedge from Lerryn to Looe'. Or the Land of Bocconnock.
