Port Navas is situated at the head of one of the most delightful tidal creeks on the Helford River and is approximately 7 miles from Falmouth, 6 miles from Helston and 16 miles from Truro. Constantine and Mawnan Smith both have a variety of shops.
Port Navas is a good centre from which to visit the many sandy coves and fishing villages of the Lizard Peninsula. The north coast is within an hour's drive and several secluded beaches are just a short drive away. Passenger ferries are available from Helford Passage to Helford and from Falmouth Prince of Wales Pier to the upper River Fal, St. Mawes, Truro and Helford River. The beautiful subtropical gardens of 'Trebah'and National Trust 'Glendurgan' are nearby.

The area is a yachtsman's paradise, excellent for sailing, motor-boating or rowing and is a perfect base for those wishing to explore the Helford River and its upper reaches, including Frenchman's Creek, immortalised by the late Daphne Du Maurier. Slipway facilities are available for launching boats and moorings may be arranged. Both motor and sailing boats may be hired locally with sailing tuition available. Local Regattas.
