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