Lansallos (Cornish: Lansalwys, meaning Salwed's church site) is a coastal hamlet and a civil parish in south Cornwall, England. It is situated between Polruan and Polperro about 5 miles (8 km) east of Fowey.

The parish is situated along the south coast of Cornwall and includes the other hamlets of Landaviddy and Raphael, as well as part of Polperro. It is bordered by the parishes of Looe to the east, Pelynt to the north and Lanteglos-by-Fowey to the west. The population in the 2001 UK census was 1,584.
