Millendreath Beach, Cornwall


  • Located in Looe, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • At low tide, Millendreath Beach is a deep, sand beach flanked by rocky foreshores. There's parking in the valley behind the beach although it's an easy walk on the South West Coast Path from Looe
  • On our most recent visit in June 2013, they were repairing the jetty on the east side of the beach. These jetties are a feature of the coastline here. For example, you'll see one at East Looe Beach and another at Hannafore Beach
  • It's not east walking, and progress can be very slow, but it's fun to walk west to Plaidy Beach and then across Looe Pen Rocks to Chough Rock Beach to East Looe Beach
  • Just east of Millendreath Beach, up on the cliffs, is The Monkey Sanctuary
  • By James Penman
