Many know of Polperro which is often called ‘Cornwall’s most picturesque fishing village’, but how many people have heard of Lansallos? This tiny village a few miles up the road has a amazing beauty with a beach of bright blue sea and sand.
Lansallos forms both civil and ecclesiastical parishes, including the hamlets of Landaviddy and Raphael, and lies on the South West Coast Path near Polperro. The civil parish is bordered by Looe to the east, Pelynt to the north and Lanteglos-by-Fowey to the west, whilst the ecclesiastical parish is nowadays combined with Talland its neighbour to the east forming a joint benefice. Its population in the 2001 census was 1,584, including Bocaddon and increasing to 1,592 at the 2011 census.
