Polruan Quay Beach
Polruan Quay Beach is a small northwest facing beach just west of the quay in the fishing village of Polruan, near Fowey on the South coast of Cornwall.
The Quay is the landing point of the Fowey to Polruan (Foot) Ferry and so the beach is overlooked by many visitors as they make their way up into Polruan. The beach looks across the water of Polruan Pool to Whitehouse Quay in Fowey and can offer a little respite from the bustle of Fowey in the summer.
Visitors normally explore Polruan before returning on the ferry, but for the more adventurous there is a fine walk west around St. Saviour's Point via West Street and Battery Lane to the lookout.
For a longer, and slightly more challenging walk, try the circular 4 mile long 'Hall Walk' along the shores of Pont Pill to the tiny hamlet of Pont, before taking the Bodinnick Ferry to Fowey.
For more information, please contact Fowey Tourist Information Centre on 01726 833616.
