The Loe (Cornish: An Logh), also known as Loe Pool, is the largest natural freshwater lake (50 ha and maximum depth of 6 m) in Cornwall, United Kingdom. The earliest recorded appearance of the name was in about 1327, when it was called the "Lo"*. Situated between Porthleven and Gunwalloe and downstream of Helston it is separated from Mount's Bay by the shingle bank of Loe Bar. Both the Loe (including the southern arm known as Carminowe Creek) and Loe Bar are situated within the Penrose Estate, administered by the National Trust, and are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest by Natural England. It is also designated as an Area of Outstanding Beauty AONB and is considered a classic Geological Conservation Review Site.
