The bustling picturesque seaside town of Looe provides a perfect base for your holiday in South East Cornwall. If you are looking for a ‘traditional’ seaside holiday with your children, Looe is ideal. East Looe has it’s own large sandy beach, shallow seas and a wealth of rock pools for the children to enjoy. During the summer, there are trampolines and other activities on the beach and the ‘Banjo Pier’ is a very popular place for a spot of rod & line fishing and for watching the fishing trawlers and other boats leave and return to the harbour. Looe offers seafood lovers the freshest fish as the day boats bring in their catch faster than any other port in Cornwall and you will find this on the menu in many of the local restaurants.
Looe is the ideal base for walkers, bird watchers and botanists. Cornwall enjoys short winters and the Looe climate is mild all year round so you will find that the flowers bloom earlier than many other places. There are many breathtaking walks along the cliff paths which form part of the South West Coastal Path - the perfect base for many coastal activities such as walking, bird watching, botany and exploring nearby bays, coves and beaches.
