Port Navas Creek

Port Navas Creek (Cornish: Pol Chi Elow, meaning creek of the house of elm trees), or Porthnavas Creek, is one of seven creeks off the Helford River in Cornwall, United Kingdom, it splits into three heads with the village of Porth Navas on the west one, Trenarth Bridge on the middle and the east one is near Budock Veane

Most of the creek is located in Ordnance Survey grid SW75x27x.

The main section is just over 1 km in length, with the bit to Porth Navas coming off about halfway along.

The creek is well known for the oyster beds.

The Helford River Children's Sailing Trust is based in the creek.

A focal point of Port Navas is Port Navas Quay - a grade II listed site which has been degraded. A campaign group has been set up to protect and preserve the Quay and to reverse environmental damage in the wider Helford River area.

Port Navas Creek 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.
