Loe Beach is near to Feock on the banks of the River Fal part way between Truro and Falmouth in Cornwall. It is best known for the Loe Beach Watersports Centre which offers courses, boat hire and activities for all kinds of sailing, windsurfing, kayak and motor boats.
In nearby Feock is a small church, built in the 19th century, whose church tower stands separate to the main building. A church has been here since the 12th century. Just a little further upriver is the Trelissick House, a stately home now run by the National Trust, and King Harry's Ferry, a chain ferry which carries cars across the river to Roseland, the ride itself something of a tourist attraction.
Also worth a visit are two inns, the 17th century Pandora Inn on Restronguet Creek and 15th century Smuggler's Cottage. Both are best reached by boat.
