East Looe

East Looe beach, Cornwall

East Looe Beach lies seaward of the town of East Looe on the South Cornwall coast, just to the east of the striking Banjo Pier.

By far the best beach in the locality, the south east facing East Looe Beach consists of pale golden sand with rock platforms at either end. It has excellent access and is a firm favourite with families.

The beach offers good swimming and plenty of space in which to let off steam or catch the sun. At the eastern end, near Pen Rocks, there are several rock pools uncovered at low water to interest younger members of the family. This area is also popular with snorkel enthusiasts. The rock platforms, known as 'The Limmicks' stretching northeast to Plaidy.

All the usual facilities are found in East Looe just behind the beach and parking is best advised across the river in the large car park at West Looe.

Due to its proximity to East Looe, the beach can become crowded in the height of summer.
