Oh we do like to be beside the seaside
Offering a touch of nostalgia from the heyday of British seaside holidaying, you can take a boat trip to the island, try your hand at catching crabs off the harbour or dig out your bucket and spade and dip your toes in the sea. There’s something different to explore everyday.
It’s not just in the summertime that Looe’s streets are enjoying the hustle and bustle of visitors. It’s the last of the festivals and something to extend the summer; Looe Music Festival brings the streets alive with impromptu performances and delicious street vendors whilst the beach takes centre stage to host world-class headline performances.
