I read somewhere that Kynance Cove was voted as one of the 10 best beaches in the world. I guess most of those voters must be from the UK who have not been abroad ! The beach is beautiful, I admit, with its huge rocks, small coves, walking paths and wonderful views across the sea. But it is very stony... More

Amazing visit to the cove - it was high tide so we had to walk the longer route and perch on the rocks when we arrived. However children enjoyed delving into rock pools and jumping across the rocks. Really glorious scenery to top off a afternoon on the beach. Even got to fly the kite next to the car park.

Glorious scenery. Quite a steep hike but well worth it. Great cafe at the cove. Lizard point always great to visit and love following the reintroduction of the Choughs who have now moved on.

We visited here on a sunny Friday lunchtime in July. It was quite busy, but not surprising given it was the school holidays. There's a bit of a steep walk down from the car park, (which also then forms part of the coastal walk to the lizard and provides spectacular views). The beach itself is nice, various caves to explore,... More

The short walk to Kynance Cove is definitely worth it on a nice sunny day. Stunningly beautiful. There is a cafe here although it was very busy so we didn't try it.

Lovely cove but gets busy at peak times. Careful with the tides as you can get caught out and stuck. A natural beauty spot though. Swimming whilst being watched by seals was a highlight.

We parked on the green and walked to the lizard as the weather was nice. Its about 3/4 of a mile walk and its worth it as the view is fantastic. Another place like Lands End that you can feel as though your at the worlds end. I think the views are better. There are some shops and cafes you... More

Parking on the green centrally they ask for a donation which you're more than happy to pay compared to the rip off of £6... More

There is free parking when you arrive at the Lizard (please feel free to leave a donation). There are the usual gift shops and ice cream parlours but the best thing to do here is to leave your car and walk... The coastal views are stunning and even the hardest of city dweller will marvel at the scenery. There is... More

Very nice walk, parked at the free parking space at Lizard and used the public footpath to get to the coast. At Kynance Cove one can enjoy the spectacular view along with Creamy Tea from the Café.
