Helford River Rockpooling

A hint of warm weather and we flock to the beach and where nicer than the little beaches around the Helford where the dog can come too and there is a wealth of fascinating wildlife to see in our rockpools.

Don’t forget our Seashore code.

  • Please leave animals and seaweeds where you find them, only take photos home
  • Always gently replace overturned rocks as you found them
  • Make sure a shell is empty before taking it home
  • Be careful on the shore, as rocks can be very slippery
  • Check the tides and keep away from the cliffs
  • Take your litter home with you or bin it
