Looe Beach (aka East Looe Beach)

The beach at Looe known as East Looe Beach is a large sandy beach with man-made seating areas and rocks to one side and Banjo Pier to the other. At high tide, you have a large beach but at low tide, you have a large area of flat sand.

The sea is shallow for a long way out and so you can enjoy paddling or swimming.

Banjo Pie is a very popular place for a spot of rod and line fishing.

A popular beach for families and in the height of the season but can become very busy but if you travel to the east the beach becomes quieter and rockier.

Facilities include parking, toilets, trampolines, shops and places to eat.
