Polperro is one of the most popular and picturesque cornish fishing villages.  Upon arrival park in the huge car park at the top of the hill (£1.50p for 2 hours and £2 for 4 hours 2006). Amazingly you will then have a choice of 5 different ways to take you down to the harbour.  Most people choose to enjoy the picturesque 15 minutes walk, dotted with pretty eating places and cottages, down to the main part of the village and the harbour.  Others have a choice between the Horse Bus (75p each way plus an ice cream-2006), the piscie carriage, the landrover (it is free on the return journey!) and the Polperro Tram Company little bus-all at low rates.  If you do choose to walk you will not be disappointed to have made the effort. At the end of the walk is the main part of this pretty village, with colour washed cottages, and an array of shops, cafes, restaurants  and old pubs with lots of outdoor seating- fish menus with locally caught  fresh fish. Proceed to the delightful harbour where there is a colourful array of fishing and sailing boats. There are boat trips to Looe and Fowey and fishing trips for mackerel.  A surprise is the delightful little sandy beach which lies adjoining the harbour and is visible at low tide.
