Plaidy Beach, Cornwall


  • Located in Looe, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Plaidy Beach is a small coarse sand and rock beach between East Looe Beach and Millendreath Beach on the East Cornwall coast. The easiest access is via the South West Coast Path. You can also walk in along the rocky shoreline at low tide. Clearly, the shoreline route will take a lot longer as you have to pick your way along the coastline avoiding rockpools and slippery rocks. There's parking up the valley from Millendreath Beach in addition to the huge public car park at Looe
