Visitor information for Looe in Cornwall

  • Looe

Pilchards, copper and smuggling have all played their part in shaping the twin towns of East and West Looe. Fishing is still an important industry and this is reflected in the many fresh fish options on the menus of the local restaurants.

Looe’s two rivers create a tidal harbour which separates West Looe & East Looe, a Victorian seven–arched bridge and a ferry link the two quite different communities. West Looe and Hannafore are quieter with rocky foreshores, while East Looe’s busy waterfront, sandy beach and Banjo Pier offer all the ingredients of a traditional seaside holiday.

There is plenty of opportunity to take to the water with a choice of cruises along the coast or to Looe Island, made popular by the Atkins sister in their books ‘Tales from our Cornish Island’ and ‘We Bought an Island’.
