The south east coast of Cornwall has many "secret" little coves and inlets, that reveal a romantic history of smuggling in the area, and none quite achieves it so well as Lansallos Cove. Here a little track winds down through the woods from the church in the village above - a typical smuggling lane if ever there was one - to the small cove and beach below, with its path hewn through the rocks on to the shore. There was once a mill behind the beach, that this path also served.

Beach at Lansallos Cove
Even at the height of summer this is a tranquil spot, and just made for a swim!

The coast towards Pencarrow Head - the South West Coast Path here is excellent.
