Looe is a major fishing port and tourism destination, situated on the South Coast of Cornwall between Plymouth and Fowey.
Looe is a popular tourist destination and one of the most picturesque fishing villages in Cornwall. Its greatest attractions are a lovely sandy beach and tidal river, which border the harbour shops and cafes. Boats provide fishing trips from the harbour, as well as pleasure cruises around Looe Island, the bay and river. Looe Harbour plays a central role in the town, ensuring our facilities are maintained for all to enjoy.
Looe Island, now owned by Cornwall Wildlife Trust and managed as a nature reserve, is just offshore. There are boats from Looe Harbour to the island most days throughout the tourist season.
