Looe has been popular with tourists for many years. It is still a major fishing port and is one of the most picturesque fishing villages in Cornwall. Its greatest attraction is the lovely sandy beach which uniquely borders the harbour shops and cafes. Visit the Old Guildhall Museum and walk out onto the Banjo Pier. A lot of visitors enjoy the myriad little gift shops and quaint eating places. Join a boat trip for mackerell fishing. Parking is no problem- Looe is divided into East looe and West Looe by the bridge over the tidal river. Coming from the direction of Polperro there is a hidden turning on the left, just before you reach the bridge. This turning will take you into the giant car park- always plenty of room. Then walk over the bridge into East looe, meander along the alleyways of shops which eventually open up onto the lovely yellow sandy beach. The beach is a gem if with toddlers because one can nip from the beach to the facilities of the cafes/shops and back again in a matter of a few minutes.
