Seaton is a large, south-facing beach composed of grey sand and pebbles, located three miles east of Looe. Not to be confused with Seaton in Devon. Popular with families, the beach stretches all the way from the mouth of the River Seaton to the resort of Downderry, about a mile to the east.

There is now a seasonal lifeguard post at Seaton.
