Looe Pier (or Banjo Pier), Cornwall


  • Located in Looe, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Visit for views and people watching. It's also fun to see boats coming in and out of the harbour
  • Looe Pier, or Banjo Pier as it's known locally, juts out into Looe Bay. The pier runs down the western edge of East Looe Beach. The head of the pier is circular, hence the 'Banjo' name. There's seating in the circular area and railings towards the end of the pier by which you can watch those boats come and go. If you fancy a boat trip, read our Looe Boat Trips listing
  • The views are huge. If you look east, you'll see various beaches including the sandy Plaidy Beach and Millendreath Beach. A little further east, on the top of Bodigga Cliff, is The Monkey Sanctuary. Following the coast around, you'll see Seaton Beach and then Whitsand Bay. The headland you see is Rame Head which is topped by Rame Head St Michael's Chapel
  • Access to Looe Pier is via the promenade area behind East Looe Beach. We've positioned the pier on Google maps so zoom in on the 'Satellite' setting to see its location
