Close to the resort town of Looe is Millendreath Beach. A south facing beach Millendreath lies at the foot of a wooded valley in a sheltered cove that during low tide has pleasant soft sands and numerous rock pools to explore. However, at high tide the beach mostly disappears.
It is easy to access neighbouring beaches including Plaidy Beach using the South West Coast Path.
Millendreath is home to what was once a popular holiday village. Open from the 1950s through to the 1990s the resort became outdated and fell into decline. Work is now nearing completion on a regeneration project which has seen a thorough modernisation of the complex and rebranding as the Black Rock beach resort.
