The village of Porthgain enjoys a wealth of historical relics from its time as a prosperous industrial harbour in the early 1900s. Large brick hoppers dominate the harbour. These hoppers were used to store crushed granite before shipment and are now a Scheduled Ancient Monument. In 1987 Porthgain was designated as a conservation area.
The harbour, still home to local fishermen, can get very busy in the summer with recreational boaters. Other attractions and conveniences include the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park rambling up both sides of the harbour, the "Strumble Shuttle" bus, and The Sloop, a pub which used to be called the 'Step In' when boats were able to dock beside the pub and the crews could step in. Porthgain also has The Shed, a small bistro situated by the Quay and the Harbour Lights Gallery, which is located in the manager's office of the old works.
