Overview

A 5.4 mile moderate coastal walk along the South West Coast Path taking in a holy legend, a 6th century monastery, an 18th century eccentric and a 19th century engineer. There are rockpools on the beaches, remnants of shipwrecks, tales of smugglers, and the walk ends with a stroll up through the picturesque fishing village of Polperro to Crumplehorn, where you can catch a bus back to Looe.

Quite simply a spectacular walk. Endless views, a sea of wild flowers, abundant bird life. As with all walks it helps if the sun shines..and it did. Not a cloud in the sky. We were going to catch a boat back to Looe, found 'a...More

A lovely walk, easy going as far as Talland but then extremely steep before you enter the final downhill leg in to Polperro. Lots of wild flowers & birds along the way.

A really lovely walk along the coast line, well worth doing if you are in the area on a nice day. There are lovely views and the path stays close to the coast, except for a small part of it that has been shut due...More

We walked from Looe to Polperro on a mostly sunny morning. A few climbs on the first leg to Talland but pretty manageable. A stop for refreshments in Talland is highly recommended to prepare for the next leg - the long steep Cardiac Hill that...More

This really is a lovely walk. It sticks close to the coast all the way so the views are breathtaking - apart from the part that is closed for health and safety. Some of it is challenging, but well worth it. There are even 2...More

This is a lovely coastal walk with some challenging parts. Great views all the way along. Refreshments available at Talland, suggest you visit the beach cafe. The route from Talland to Polperro has been diverted due to a landslide and the detour is quite steep....More

We have read the walk is not the easiest but as mentioned in previous reviews it is definitely worth it for the amazing views. Wouldn’t advise anyone to do it if it’s raining or wet as could be a bit tricky.

This was the highlight of our trip to Looe. The route itself is fairly simple - there are numerous guides and maps online that can help. You essentially walk from West Looe round to Hannafore Point and from there join the South West Coastal Path....More

There are some steep parts of the walk especially at talland bay. But if you take it very slow it will be ok. Don't go on a rainy day. It's beautiful.
