Looe Island (St George's Island)

An Island of Dreams. Two sisters, Babs and Evelyn Atkins, dreamed of owning an island, and bought it in 1965. Visit the Looe Island website, or for more information, check the Sisters' Island Dream website. The island was once also known as St.George's Island, and has also been recorded as St.Michael's Island.

The island once came under the control of Glastonbury Abbey, and legend has it that Joseph of Aramathea also landed here during the first century AD with the child Jesus, while trading for tin.
