Looe. Where do I even start? Beauty. It has everything a family day out would need. It has a tiny, cute little arcade but not with the ‘gambling’ vibes more like memorable family fun. There is a town on the cliff edge with shops selling souvenirs and fudge to a Boots in case you forgot your sun cream! Looe is a small coastal town with a fishing port located in South-East Cornwall, in England. Looe is 20 miles West of Plymouth and 7 miles South of Liskeard, divided in 2 by the River Looe. East and West Looe are connected by a bridge.
There are many beautiful and peaceful beaches within Looe. Some places that I personally enjoyed visiting was ‘East Looe Beach’, you can go swimming in the blue water but I usually see people go paddle-boarding and kayaking when the sea is calm. You can also travel to ‘St Georges Island’, which is equally as interesting, there is a boat at the top end of Looe which travels there for a small fee frequently when the sea is calm and it is definitely worth visiting! It is a wildlife trust island and marine reserve. You can also walk out to the island when the tide is out, but make sure you make it back to the walkway in time! It is really worth visiting, it has buzzing wildlife and plenty of history to learn about.
At the top end of Looe Bay, to the right of Looe Estuary, there is a rock formation of a wave-cut platform from the coastal erosion and it is mesmerising to look at. This area is dog-friendly and suitable for children as there are many rock pools to investigate with nets. On hot days there is a really strong smell of seaweed near the cliff but quickly fades away the further you go from it. There are toilets and a small shop that sells coffee, drinks, sandwiches, cakes, and snacks. It is fairly quiet and is not over-crowded on a hot day. It is a really cool place to experience!
