Hannafore Beach

Book Tickets Online


At low tide, Hannafore Beach is a rock pool lovers paradise as the colourful shallow pools extend tantalisingly close to Looe Island. At high tide, the sea can reach the sea wall, covering the small shingle bays. Stroll along the seafront and enjoy the sea breeze while resting on one of the many benches on the grassy bank and admire the stunning view of the bay. Treat yourself at the Island View Cafe or Hannafore Kiosk and afterwards you can enjoy putting, bowls and tennis, all located behind the beach.  At the western end of Hannafore, you can join the South West Coast Path and walk to Polperro (approximately 5 miles).
