East Looe beach, on the South East coast of Cornwall is a popular family beach, with plenty of entertainment nearby for a fun day by the sea. Located in the traditional fishing town of Looe and home to the second largest fishing port in Cornwall, the harbour is a constant buzz with boats coming and going with their daily catch.
The wide crescent-shaped beach has beautiful clean sand and crystal clear shallow waters – perfect for splashing around in. Bordering the western end is the uniquely shaped Banjo Pier, popular with anglers and crabbers. Directly behind East Looe beach is a lovely promenade with all the amenities and the perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by with an ice-cream.
Parking is a five to ten minute level walk away, but the journey through the narrow cobbled streets leading to the beach is delightful, with restaurants, bakeries and independent shops along the way.
Access onto the beach is via a few steps and ramp from the promenade, with sand chairs for the disabled available for hire from Looe Town Trust Seafront Workshops (Tel – 01503 263709)
