About Looe

Spread across both banks of the River Looe, and featuring a beautiful golden beach, this historic harbour town is the place to enjoy a seaside adventure.

Begin by heading down to the riverside to see colourful, traditional cottages cascading down the surrounding hillsides to the harbour below - where a small fleet of traditional fishing boats gathers. Each day, they deliver a choice of fresh fare to the town’s many bistros and restaurants, making Looe the perfect spot to taste crisp and fluffy fish and chips or authentic Cornish seafood dishes.

Active types will love exploring the South West Coast Path which passes through the town, or there are kayaks for hire if you’d like an up-close view. Of course, relaxing on Looe’s pristine, gently shelving sands is pretty tempting too!

Residents like Joel, who grew up in Looe, also says that even if it rains, there's plenty of fun to be had nearby, "Cornwall is very outdoorsy, so it can be a nightmare in the rain, but anything sea-based or water-based then you’re fine because you’re going to get wet anyway. Just because it's raining shouldn't stop you from going to sea, you get more wet walking on a beach in your clothes than you do in a wetsuit because they’re designed to be wet.”

Throughout the year, Looe hosts numerous festivals, with its New Year celebrations and the famous Looe Music Festival being particular highlights.
