Many of the best things in Life require a little more effort and this is true of Lantic Bay. Roughly 20 minute’s walk from the closest car park it is beautifully hidden and secluded, ideal for the May half-term. It is nestled in a sheltered cove on the south east coast, just over a mile from Fowey, Lantic Bay is renowned for being a ‘sun-trap’ and has fine white sand bordered with shingle.
