5. Paint A Pot

Paint and take home your own pottery – if it’s wet or the kids want something else to do… pop into Paint A Pot, it’s great fun and very relaxing.


6. Cornish Music

Listen to live Cornish music – many of the pubs have live music on certain days during the week and we host the best beach music festival in Cornwall.


7. Rockpooling

Rockpooling on East Beach and West Looe Beach is a joy, as the pools are brimming with tiny sea creatures and plant life. Handle them with care though and be sure to put back what you find.


8. Sea Fishing

Catch your own tea from one of the many boats that offer sea fishing trips out of Looe Harbour. One of my friends, Phil Curtis, runs the Typhoon Fishing Trips and I always recommend his trips to all that ask.
