Lantic Bay

Lantic Bay beach, Cornwall

Lantic Bay beach lies in a sheltered, hidden cove in south east Cornwall, around 1½ miles from both Fowey and Polruan, and 4 miles from Polperro. Lantic Bay is a south-facing ‘sun trap’ beach with white sands and some shingle.


Beach at Lantic Bay, CornwallAccess to the beach, via a steep cliff path, is very difficult and as such is inaccessible to wheelchairs or pushchairs. Because of the difficulty of access, Lantic is normally a very quiet beach. Fine views from the beach take in the impressive Pencarrow Head.

Self catering holiday accommodation is available nearby in Fowey holiday cottages, or holiday cottages in Polruan and Polperro.

Lantic is a dog-friendly beach. The nearest (National Trust) car parks are a 15-20 walk from the beach. The nearest toilets are also some distance from the beach, at the outer-most car park, and there are no shops or cafés. The frequent strong rip currents in the bay are dangerous, so swimming is not recommended.
