The tiny port of Polperro is located just south of Looe. A glut of touristic souvenir stores fails to detract from this beautiful old Cornish fishing hamlet, whose small alleys and pretty houses remain unquestionably appealing. In the summer, many of the houses are covered in a profusion of flowers, and the alleys are so tiny that automobiles are prohibited, making Polperro a wonderful area to explore on foot.
There are stores offering paintings, ceramics, jewellery, and a variety of other items for visitors. There are also newsagents, bakers, and other stores supplying daily necessities. There are also galleries and exhibits of arts and crafts. Every year in June, Polperro has an Arts Festival. The Water Carnival and the Furry Festival are two more community activities.
