Hannafore Beach

Click here for bed and breakfast accommodation near Hannafore Beach


Situated at West Looe. A rocky beach with shingle and patches of rough sand. This is quite a long stretch following Marine Drive and really includes Wallace beach, although the two merge into one. Above the beach there are grassy banks and benches. There are some exceptional rock pools uncovered by the retreating tide with lobsters, crabs, eels, shrimps, all a favourite with the children with their nets. The whole stretch is a real sun-trap and popular with those who prefer a less populated beach rather than the much busier sandy beach at East Looe. Just off Hannafore is Looe Island or to use its proper name, St Georges Island, once home to a monastic community. Just off the mainland, on exceptionally low tides it is possible to walk to it, but usually boats take visitors on short trips.


Services include toilets and café (seasonal) No Lifeguard service and whilst bathing is possible is probably not advisable for this reason.
