The main car park for Polperro is located at the top of the village, with shuttle services available during the peak season. As the village streets are narrow and largely pedestrianized, parking closer to the beach is not feasible.


From Plymouth, take the A38 west towards Liskeard, then follow the A390 towards St Austell before turning onto the A387 towards Polperro. As you approach Polperro, note that the village is mostly car-free. Visitors are encouraged to park in the main car park at the top of the village and walk down to the beach.
