The historic harbour town of Looe in South East Cornwall may still be a working fishing port, but it’s one of the most popular holiday destinations in the county.

This Cornwall fishing port is a catch

With the wilds of Bodmin Moor to one side and the Tamar Valley close by, Looe is a stunning natural setting.

Famous for its crabs and mackerel, Looe is always a hit with foodies. The harbour is lined with restaurants selling freshly caught fish and Cornish cream tea. The star of the show, though, is East Looe Beach: a large sandy stretch overlooked from the east by the hillside of Mount Ararat. The rock beach here is great for snorkelling.

Make the south-west peninsula a base for your next staycation.
