Looe


The Coastal town of Looe is in south-east Cornwall and it attracts people from all over the world every year. Each of them wanting to soak up a little bit of the idyllic atmosphere that Looe is famous for.

A working fishing port, you won't catch Looe on a quiet day, I don't believe there is such a thing! But despite how busy it gets, the atmosphere is still one of peace and relaxation.


Looe might not be big, but it would be easy to spend all day there because there is something for everybody. From arcades for the kids (and grown ups too!) to rock climbing on the beach, there is something to cater for every individual. And if you are not feeling active, you can sit and have a drink or some delicious dinner in one of the restaurants and cafe's scattered around the town.


Everywhere you turn you will see something inspiring in Looe, even the car park has a beautiful view!


The day we went, we were lucky enough to come across Looe raft race which raises money for the Looe Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) It was a fun event, even if we did get covered in jelly and hit with a water balloon! Apparently it used to be tradition to throw water balloons at the people in the boats, but due to environmental concerns, the organisers now recommend throwing jelly!  It was fun to see how many people took part and how many got into the spirit of things.


Looe is a stunning place and should definitely be on your list if you are going to Cornwall.
