Carrick Roads is located on the southern Cornishmarker coast in the UKmarker, near Falmouthmarker. It is a large waterway created after the Ice age from an ancient valley which flooded as the melt waters caused the sea level to rise dramatically (see Ria), creating a large natural harbour which is navigable from Falmouth to Truromarker.

The Falmouth Harbour Commissioners are the statutory port authority with responsibility for the Inner Harbour at Falmouth (excluding Falmouth Docks), the Penrynmarker River up as far as Boyers Cellars, the southern part of the Carrick Roads and a large part of Falmouth Bay.

The Roads are crossed by the historic and scenic King Harry Ferrymarker, a vehicular chain ferry that links the villages of Feockmarker and Philleighmarker.
