Beautiful part of Cornwall. We parked in the car park on the south side of the Loe and walked down using strava to find a good route

Really lovely walk from Porthleven along the cliff tops to reach Loe Pool. It is abeautiful site, even on the dull day we visited it. A few up and downs, and some pathways blocked, thanks to National Trust improvements, and safety works. Very pleasent wandering along well defined paths, and overlooking the deep dark waters of Loe Pool.Good morning out, and as a reward bonus, ended up a pub in Porthleven.

If you take the small right turn just before HMS Seahawk on the A3083 this will take you to a free car park which is a ten minute walk to Loe Pool, rather than take the arduous route through The Penrose Estate

This is an extremely dangerous body of water, just this week a horse was spooked & ended up in Loe pool with it's rider. Both the horse & rider were dragged beneath the water twice & only just managed to get out. Also the pool has been known to have green algae which is highly toxic & dogs have been extremely ill.
Avoid going in this pool at all costs, stay safe.
PS local legend says it's cursed
We are locals & live just along the coast.

Scenic walk from Helston to Porthleven, followed by a delicious Sunday roast on the harbour front.
Excellent bus service back!

The beach is beautiful when the tide is out and a walk around Loe Pool (about 6 miles) is relatively flat and easy as well as interesting. The sea is dangerous (shelves steeply and is rough) and you cannot swim there so children and dogs would need to be closely supervised
