Looe: A Jewel on the South Cornwall Coast

The traditional fishing village of Looe on the South East Coast of Cornwall offers a holiday experience for the whole family. Lovely sandy beaches surround the town and there is a wealth of fishing and diving available out at sea. If you wish to venture out of the town and explore the area, the Cornish coast is full of old fishing villages, such as Polperro and Mevagissey. Looe has the fortune of having a beautiful still flowing river down the middle of it, making it very popular for sailing and water activities. From a ferry ride across this river to making your own way in a canoe or kayak you’ll be able to get out on the water. Along the riverside there are plenty of wonderful Cornish holiday homes waiting for someone to come and begin their Looe holiday right in the heart of this seaside community.

Have a go at crewing on an ex-lifeboat or a classic yacht; no matter what mode of transport you chose you’ll be sure to enjoy every second of it. Once off the water, there are hundreds of rock pools to gaze into and lobster baskets to poke and spy on, but perhaps the best part of Looe’s immense natural offering is the size of the local seals. Basking innocently on the Cornish rocks are usually a group of seals watching the world go by. Why not organise a family trip out and see how many of these fantastic creatures you can count from the comfort of a glass-bottomed boat.

The scenery around Looe is incredible; the main beach has a wonderful pier curing around the right side of it, creating a lovely feel of safety for all the family and adds a small quirk to an already magnificent Cornish beach. Looe seems to tick all the boxes for a great family holiday and shouldn’t be missed.
