Looe Pen Rocks to Chough Rock Beach, Cornwall


  • Located in Looe, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • Whilst the strip of coastline between East Looe Beach and Plaidy Beach/Millendreath Beach isn't marked as a beach on the Ordnance Survey Explorer 107 'St Austell & Liskeard' map, *at low tide* it's a fine stretch of rocky coastline backing on to a coarse sand area below high cliffs. We'd recommend it for rockpooling
  • Access to the west end of the beach is via a narrow path that runs behind Pen Rocks from East Looe and East Looe Beach. Access to the east end of the beach is via Plaidy Beach and the rocky foreshore. Access to the middle of the beach is via a steep track that cuts down from the South West Coast Path. It's a bit of a scramble at the bottom so not recommended unless you are sure on your feet. When we used this track, there was a blue rope in place to help guide you down to the coarse sand
