We have done this walk many times over many years whilst staying at Looe. It is well worth the effort with a stop at Talland Bay and a meal at Polperro.

We are from Lincoln and We don't do/have hills :) Fantastic walk but if your only doing one way I recommend the boat to Polperro (lovely around the Island) and walk back. The cafes at Talland are a perfect halfway recharging post. Enjoy

Easy to walk. Not possible with prams or wheelchairs. Nice sea views. Unfortunately a part is currently closed due to damage to the cliff path. Diversion partially signposted.

This walk was amazing! Not only is it good exercise the views are most certainly worth the hilly walk. Would highly recommendable if your in the area.

As it was a lovely day we decided to take the coastal walk which is about 5 miles and not too taxing but be aware that there are couple of very steep hills en route and is slightly rugged in places

This is one of the nicest walks I know of. We regularly stay in Looe and do this walk(although in the reverse order to to title). We make it a nice round trip by catching the bus from Looe, having a wander around Polperro and...More

Nice path with interesting views and a cafe half way along. Some indecision re final half mile to Polperro - a choice between a very steep climb or a walk hugging the coast which may be subject to some serious and dangerous erosion. We took...More

We had planned to walk this both ways but while enjoyable with lovely views one way was enough for us and after a pasty in Polperro we caught the bus back to looe.

I’m 75 and I did it last month. There are some pretty steep parts and lots of stairs but the views are well worth the hike. Not a problem for the youngsters. Stop in Talland Bay for an ice cream. Be sure to take water!
