Hannafore Beach, Cornwall


  • Located in Looe, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • As you head out of West Looe on the South West Coast Path, you come to a 'Shelter and Viewing Point'. Beyond that, a ramp leads down to a rocky shoreline backing on to a coastal wall. This is Hannafore Beach. It follows the curve of the coastline and runs past HM Coastguard Looe into Wallace Beach. You can walk along the coastal wall. Above that is a grassy bank with seating from which you can enjoy the spectacular view across Looe Bay to Whitsand Bay and Rame Head. In front of the HM Coastguard Looe lookout, a jetty runs out towards Hannafore Point with Looe Island (or St George's) beyond
  • Hannafore Beach is a great contrast to the sandy East Looe Beach. Whenever we've visited, it's also been a lot less crowded. Great for rockpooling and views
