Helford Passage (Cornish: Treth Heyl, meaning ferry to Helford) is a village in west Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is situated on the north bank of the Helford River opposite Helford approximately five miles (8 km) south-southwest of Falmouth.[1] The village is in the civil parish of Mawnan; before 1986, it was in the parish of Constantine.

A pedestrian ferry operates daily from Easter to October between Helford Passage and Helford[2]

Helford Passage lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Almost a third of Cornwall has AONB designation, with the same status and protection as a National Park.

The gardens at Trebah, the National Trust's Glendurgan Garden, are a short walk away.
