Walk - Hannafore Point
2.7 miles (4.4 km)
West Looe Millpool Car Park, West Looe
Easy - This is a gentle, mainly level walk on good surfaces.
From the large car park at Millpool, through West Looe, out to Hannaford Point and beyond. This is a gentle, mainly level walk on good surfaces. When the road ends beyond Hannaford, then the Coast Path continues for a couple of fields through two gates before the path becomes very difficult for wheelchairs and pushchairs. The fields are eminently passable with short grass and a reasonably level surface. Back in West Looe, there is one section where the coast path goes up some steps but by keeping to the road and going up a gradient of 1:15 for about 100m you can avoid the steps. This road leads to stunning views of Looe and the river and is well worth the effort. Further on, the views from Rame Head, to St Georges Island and on to Portnadler Bay are wonderful.
