The English coastal town is about 30 kilometers from Plymouth in the English county of Cornwall. It has only about 5,000 inhabitants and is very popular with amateur anglers, as they can start shark fishing tours from there. With blue sharks abundant in the waters of Looe, the chances of catching one are good. For those sport anglers looking to get new experiences and discover deep sea fishing for themselves, a visit to the south west of the UK is a great idea.
Places to visit in Looe
Even if you don’t necessarily associate a beach holiday with Cornwall, you have the option in Looe with its beautiful wide sandy beach. The village with its narrow and picturesque streets invites you to linger, stroll and discover. The guild house located in the city center now serves as a museum in which the tourist can find out about the past of the region.
It is also home to the county’s second largest fishing fleet. The fishing trawlers offer a wonderful photo opportunity and give an impression of the hard work of the fishermen.
The coast has other recreational opportunities ready. Strolling on the beach is very popular with visitors. Then vacationers like to spend the time in one of the many picturesque cafés, which of course offer a wide variety of teas, pastries and sandwiches.
Of course, the sea can be explored in a variety of ways. Boat rental companies offer tours with glass-bottom ships. The underwater world can thus be easily explored without the holiday guest having to get into the cool water himself. Those who are a little more adventurous opt for a ride on a speedboat that glides elegantly over the water, with the passenger being exposed to the wind, the waves and the spray. Sailing trips that take place on real Cornish loggers are also available.
The island of St. George is also easily accessible with the water companions, where, for example, a nice English-style picnic can be organized.
The Monkey Sanctuary is also a popular destination. The reserve founded in 1964 is home to a large number of woolly monkeys.

With interesting special and permanent exhibitions as well as numerous special live events, the historic building has a lot to offer. At low tide, tourists can walk to L’Islet, and at high tide by special ferry.
