Looe, meaning deep water inlet is a small coastal town, fishing port in south-east Cornwall.
Looe is 20 miles west of Plymouth and 7 miles south of Liskeard, divided in two by the River Looe, East Looe and West Looe (meaning Little Cove) being connected by a bridge. Looe developed as two separate towns..
The town centres around a small harbour and along the steep-sided valley of the River Looe which flows between East and West Looe to the sea beside a sandy beach. Offshore to the west, opposite the stonier Hannafore Beach, lies Looe Island.
