Additionally, the area was once a bustling mining hub, and visitors can still explore remnants of old mines and a nearby port at Charlestown, which is 3km west. The port is renowned for its picturesque harbour and has been featured in period dramas like Poldark.

For visitors who desire a livelier beach atmosphere, Carlyon Beach is located at the bay's west end with a larger expanse of coarse sand and crystal-clear waters.

Overall, Polgaver Beach beach is a lovely location for anyone seeking a tranquil beach experience, whether to relax on the sand, take a dip in the sea or explore the local area.
