The area was once home to a thriving mining industry, and visitors can still see the remnants of the old mines. Also, the nearby port of Charlestown , which is 2.5km west of the beach, is a picturesque harbour that is often used as a filming location for period dramas, such as Poldark. It's lovely to spend a leisurely afternoon around the harbour, to view the tall ships and historic buildings.

For those who are looking for a quieter beach experience, Polgaver Beach is located at the east end of the bay. This secluded cove is a hidden gem, with beautiful white sand and clear blue water.

Overall, Carlyon Bay is a beautiful beach that is well worth a visit. Whether you are looking to relax, take a dip in the sea or explore, there is something for everyone here.
