Lizard Point was lovely on the day we went. The weather was kind that day, even though we did have a shower. Standing on the cliff path we watched a kestrel hovering almost within arms reach, a birds eye view you could say. Further down by one of the eateries there was a very helpful National Trust lady pointing out... More

Ann's pasty shop sells great pasties! A must if you visit The Lizard!! Did not pay to park to go to the lighthouse as I thought it was very expensive at £3.20.

The Lizard and Cove are really something you should see. I am so glad we stayed at this end of Cornwall for 3 days. Cove not dog friendly bt it was well worthing the climb part the way down to see. Dog friendly beach which we found out a bit too late is Coverack Cove.

We visited with my elderly mother who is not so great on her feet. We still had a lovely visit to Kynance Cove - walked along the cliff tops, which is fairly easy terrain, to some stunning views over the cove. If you've got your boots on and love a good walk, I think this place on a sunny day... More

Kynance Cove is simply stunning. We walked from The Lizard, about 30 minutes walk, there are cafes at both locations. You could park at the National Trust car park, which is about 15 minutes walk. There are two routes from the car park. To avoid the rocky beach, look out for the much easier pathway which will take you via... More

Kynance Cove is a beautiful place to visit - either to walk or to swim. It is long walk down to the beach - but that tends to deter those with whom one one rather not share a beach.

There are many lovely places to visit on the Lizard. We took a walk along to Kynance Cove and it was stunning. I wish we had arrived in the afternoon so we could have had a swim but it was evening and the tide was in. We particularly liked Coverack beach as well. The Lizard being a small peninsula is... More

I have travelled but kynance cove is the most amazing beach, as kids we loved the waves and rock pools. I have never been to a better beach in the world. Well worth a visit with the kids they will love the waves when the tide is coming in especially on the body boards, there is a rock pool where... More

Lizard has a few cafes, gift shops and a delightful Pub, I didn't get to see Kynance Cove as it is not a Dog Friendly beach, however we did go down to Lizard Point and if the weather is on your side this is a lovely hours walk or stroll. Definitely recommend Lizard and Lizard Point to anyone visiting West... More

We love to visit the Regent Cafe followed by a walk at Kynance. You need to be a NT member - or pay to park, please do so it is well worth it.
