The Sail Loft

What to do in Looe

Lots and lots is the answer. Choose from visiting the beach, especially popular with young families to swim, paddle and make sand castles. Visit the town and enjoy looking around the gift shops, tasting local ice cream and fish ‘n’chips or take an exciting speed boat trip around the bay.

Maybe instead join a local boat trip right on the quay side outside the Sail Loft. Sail off to nearby Polperro or Fowey for a day trip or visit the famous St George's Island, for many years in the stewardship of the Atkins sisters (who published two books about the life on the Island) but now maintained by the Cornwall Wildlife Trust. www.cornwallwildlifetrust.org.uk


Looe Island from Hannafore

For the more energetic Looe is an ideal base for coastal walks. East along the cliffs past Millendreath to Downderry is a suggestion, or stroll over the bridge to West Looe and on to Hannafore for the coastal path to Tallend and Polperro.


The coast path toward Plaidy

Hannafore also has a beach shore line, not the golden sands of the main East Looe beach but ideal for rock pooling and free parking along the adjacent main road. Tennis Courts and a Bowling and Putting green, all open to the public for reasonable entrance fees, are another feature of the area.

If it's sailing you are after Looe Sailing Club, just around the corner from the Sail Loft, is a friendly club offering local sailing but with a prestigious reputation for hosting National and International events. www.looesailingclub.co.uk
