A welcome shift from the previous section, the walking after Polperro becomes a little easier through the pretty village of Talland Bay. The final section to Looe is along the seawall with some fantastic views across to St Georges Island.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
