Positioned about half a mile east of Gillan and running to Parbean, Men-aver Beach is part of a series of small coves and beaches and is set beneath Lestwoder Cliff. Made up of sand and shingle with rocky ledges at low tide, it is a quiet beach that never gets busy, but makes a great location for watching the boats on the Helford River.
