Want a glimpse of the gorgeous Polruan before travelling there to experience it yourself? Take a look at our webcam below to view life on the seashore.
This live stream displays daily life on the coast of Polruan, a small coastal resort surrounded on three sides by water, making it a holiday maker’s paradise. Ocean as far as the eye can see and family-friendly eateries and attractions - this coastal town is a gorgeous place for a UK holiday.
Polruan is home to the coastal ruins of Polruan Castle and St Catherine’s Castle and sits on the edge of the Fowey estuary. You can cross this river in a ferry to the equally lovely town of Fowey for further exploration.
Kayak, canoe or sail down Fowey Estuary and out onto the English Channel. Follow the Polruan Coast and Creek Walk which will take you past stunning views of the beaches of Lantic Bay and Gribbin Head then down to the creek and quay at Pont Pill.
This lovely part of Polruan is Quay Beach. Take a look at the picturesque scene of the ocean, boats and old stone buildings.
Filled with holidaymakers during the summer and walkers and coastal explorers during the winter, not to mention locals regularly working and wandering around the harbour, this cam allows you to watch the slow and peaceful Polruan way of life unfold.
