    The fishing villageBeautiful viewsNot crowded!
    In Polperro it’s easy to step back in time to fishing village on the south east coast of Cornwall. With it beautiful cottages clinging to its steep hillsides around a small harbour with spectacular views of land and sea truly made it an artistic paradise.

    Polperro offered plenty of places to eat and relax. Besides the pretty views, he village was dotted with several galleries selling work by local artists that really added to the culture of the area!

    What really struck me were the abundance of quirky independent shops all around along with the unique tidal pools that I hadn’t seen anywhere before! Polperro was full of surprises and beauty!

    I had always wanted to visit the village after reading the book “The Sea Shell Girl” by Linda Finlay: where he book is based in Polperro and I was compelled to take a visit to the magical little fishing village!

    But. It as actually a lot bigger than I expected. I had vision of a tiny village with a couple of sea side shops but it was abundant with beautiful pubs and cafes and restaurants and what not!

    The harbour was quite small but so picturesque. There was a beach with some great caves for explorers. It was a mixture of sand and shingle, walking around in beach shoes taking in the views was incredibly refreshing!

    We even walked up the south west cost oath to get the most amazing photos and witness stunning views like this! The colours were gorgeous!

    My favourite thing to do was to stroll along the footpaths for spectacular views and access the beautiful beaches which were quite empty even in summer!

    The small sandy beach was located right outside the main breakwaters. It had quite a story to it. It is believed that the cave right in front of it was used by smugglers.

    Since I discovered the village walking around on foot , it gave the chance to take a closer look at the pretty houses all around. White washed with splashes of pinks and greens! The homes here were so beautiful and inviting.

    There was a small walkway across the beach which was used during the low tide which was quite quaint. The whole village was just an intricate set up of beautiful walkways and inlets!

    At the foot of chapel cliff on a sandy beach lay a small tidal bathing pool which has been the site of many first swims! It was so natural full of giant rocks and what not, it was quite a sight to watch so many people swim and enjoy the weather here!

    What I enjoyed the most though was the fishing trip in Polperro! There were so many baits around so it was also really easy to access. It wasn’t expensive either which was a perk!

    It gave me a chance to get up close and personal with the village. The entire village revolves around the whole fishing aspect so getting a chance to go on a trip to fish was as close to the culture as it got!

    Besides getting incredible views of the lakes and backwaters, I got a chance to talk the fisherman who told me their stories about the village and the incredulous number of fish they would catch!

    Old school feel
    The village had a calm, old school feel about it. The white washed houses against the setting of the water was beautiful. The hustle bustle of the village and fisherman added to the vibe of the place as well.

    It was so strange to know that I never would have heard about this place or even visited if I hadn’t read that book that was set here , written so beautifully that I had no choice but to come here and see it for myself!

    It was such an off the usual tourist track kinda place so visiting it made it even more exciting! I got views that were not obstructed because there were barely any people around! Clear views of this pretty village were magnificent,

    Some of the pictures, well actually, most of them seem like from a movie! With the green hills and wild horses in a fisherman’s village- it was absolutely breathtaking. It felt like another world.

    Polerro has attracted people with an interest in a wide range of creative skills such as photography, art and music. The coastal path and the sea offers some thing for the adventure seekers as well! It was so easy to be drawn in.

    This whole village offered something new, something I don’t usually experience on vacations- it was a lovely getaway but I know that there is so much more to explore around the village and I can’t wait to come here again and discover anything I missed out on!
