Looe (Cornish: Logh) is a small coastal town, fishing port and civil parish in the former Caradon district of south-east Cornwall, England, UK, with a population of 5,280 (2001 census). Looe is in fact two towns, East Looe and West Looe, connected by bridge across the River Looe. The towns are approximately 20 miles (32 km) west of the city of Plymouth and seven miles (11 km) south of Liskeard[1].

The towns are situated 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. Off shore to the west, opposite the stonier Hannafore beach, lies the picturesque St George's Island, commonly known as Looe Island.
