  • Yes, there are several small beaches where you can enter the water (which is often a little warmer than the nearby sea), just be aware of boats and other users of the river.

  • The South West Coast Path runs from the Helford Passage towards Falmouth and from the Porthoustock around to Helford on the south side of the estuary. A ferry takes you across.

    There's also a permissive footpath alongside the iconic Frenchman's Creek, made famous by Daphne du Maurier's classic novel.

  • The Helford lies to the south of Falmouth and forms the northern border of the Lizard Peninsular. The north side is the easiest to access with good roads coming out of Falmouth passing the gardens of Glendurgan and Trebah before dropping down to Helford Passage.

    The southside requires navigating narrow lanes through wooded valleys, but you are rewarded by quieter locations.
