Polgaver Beach

Polgaver beach

Located at the far end of Carlyon Bay, Polgaver was the first official nudist beach in Cornwall, inaugurated in 1971. Whilst it used to be one of the most popular naturist spots in the area, the recent controversial development of Carlyon Bay seem to have put pay to this.
