Looe Island (or St George's), Cornwall


  • Located in Looe, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • 'Take a boat trip on 'ISLANDER' to see the wildlife of St George's Island and learn about its fascinating history of smuggling, solitary monks and how two sisters from suburban Surrey came to own it. Now owned by Cornwall Wildlife Trust, visitors can enjoy the natural beauty of this tranquil island and follow way-marked routes to watch sea birds, seals and the island's flock of Hebridean sheep. Visits ashore normally last 2 hours, depending on tides. You are advised to take a drink and a picnic as refreshments are not available on the island. Please take your litter home. Dogs (other than guide dogs) are not allwed on the island to prevent wildlife being distrubed. Walk on, walk off for easy access.' (Source: information board on quay at East Looe)
