Paragliding Talland Bay
Talland Bay lies midway between Looe and Polperro. The bay boasts two sheltered shingle beaches know as Rotterdam Beach and Talland Sand. In earlier days bay was well-known as a landing spot for smugglers.
The remains of the Marguerite’s boiler can still be clearly seen on the beach at low tide. This French trawler sunk in 1922. A famous rescue was carried out by two private boats that resulted in the saving of all 22 lives.
Celebrity couple Richard and Judy Finnegan have a house locally and often will enthuse about life in Cornwall.
