With the recent weather having been so beautiful, and with summer only around the corner, many visitors to our hotel may want to visit the beach. We have taken a look at some of the more secluded beaches near Fowey Cornwall, which offer you all the greatness that the beach has to offer, together with some peace and quiet:

Polridmouth Cove

Polridmouth Cove Beach is set in the sheltered cove just east of Gribben Head. The south facing beach gets reclaimed at high tide, which leads it to be divided into two smaller beaches. Walkers along the South West Coastal Path will pass Poldridmouth Cove, and enjoy stunning coastal views. The cove is also where Daphne du Maurier based part of her famous novel "Rebecca", and there is even a lake complete with ducks and swans nearby!

Lansallos

Lansallos is a sandy beach which slopes gently down to the water's edge. Surround by cliffs, it is perfectly sheltered if you felt like a swim. Seeing as the beach is quite isolated and tucked away, you do not get any passing water traffic like you may experience at some other places, and it is also one of the more fairly unknown beaches of the region, so it is perfect for relaxation.

Palace Cove, near Polruan

Whilst technically not in Fowey, Palace Cove can either be accessed via the main South West Coastal Path, with a small, winding path running from the main down to the beach. Alternatively, it can be accessed by the Polruan ferry, which runs daily between Fowey and Polruan. All that remains of the old "palace" here is a grassy area and part of the old palaces walls. This spot is however, perfect for casting the last of the evening sun, and is often the part in full sun where other areas may have gone into shade.

Lantic Bay

Not often as busy as some of the other beaches due to the walk required to get there, Lantic Bay certainly rewards you with stunning views if you are willing to walk for them. As you walk the footpath, the beach is revealed to you as you pass over the brow of the hill. A sand and shingle beach is cut into the surround cliffs, and is perfect retreat if you are looking for some "me" time. The descent to the beach takes around 20 minutes, but is worth every second when you get to drink in the beauty surrounding you.
