Helford Passage Beach

Helford Passage Beach is a charming sand and shingle beach, tucked away on the banks of the beautiful Helford River near Falmouth in South Cornwall.

Helford Passage’s riverside location is the perfect setting for a relaxing day watching the world go by, and with a lovely old pub sitting right on the beach, time can easily fly. Spend the day watching the small boats come and go, take the ferry across the river to discover nearby Helford or even become captain and take to the water to explore the numerous creeks with a wide selection of watercraft available to to hire from the beach.

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a sub tropical climate, the Helford River boasts breathtaking scenery and is a walker’s delight thanks to the South West Coast Path. And if all that wasn’t enough, nearby is the world famous Trebah and Glendurgan gardens.
