"Sittin' on the dock of the bay"

Polperro Beach

Very small cove backed by beautiful little Cornish fishing village. Tiny ancient cottages appear almost to be tottering into the sea at high tide, and there's a smuggler's museum and a shell fronted house. Well worth a visit.

Important! Tide times are for the nearest measurement point and may not be accurate for this location. You should not rely on these times for anything other than a broad indication of when the tide will be at its highest or lowest.

In particular, these tide times are not suitable for navigational use. Accurate tide forecasts require complex calculations and detailed local information. If you intend to engage in any activity for which tidal information is important for safety reasons (including sailing, powerboating, diving, and surfing) then you should obtain professional data.
