I was a little skeptical about visiting this spot after all the hype I heard read about. However, apart from the crowds, it was as amazing as described. I would definitely get to the beach as early as possible. The car park is free before 9am and when we arrived there was not a single person there. However, you will... More

We visited here for a field trip with uni and loved the place. The views are spectacular especially when the sun is out and you can see the aquamarine colours in the water. Excellent spots for botany watching, rockpooling and stroking the local cows. There is a lovely little ice cream shop just by the beach which was a perfect... More

Kynance isn't as massive in a scale as some other Cornish sights (Bedruthan Steps on the north coast is giant) but it's still spectacularly beautiful. It wasn't a particularly sunny day when we visited but it was still well worth the visit. It's the sort of place that'll be amazing in any weather. Highly recommended, we'll definitely be returning in... More

Absolutely stunning, dramatic coastline. When the sea is calm its lovely to sit and look out for the Seals that swim around the rocks, and also the abundance of birds that amass here. Its also wonderful to watch the full force of the ocean, as it turns from a calm serene sea to a raging monster slamming itself into the... More

visited here after a disappointing trip to Lands End...The Lizard is beautiful, there are lots of walks with amazing views of the coast line. We had a picnic and spent about 30 minutes watching seals down in the cove below the most southern point. It isn't too touristy and there are a couple of gift shacks and a café which... More

Bass Point is I think the actual most southerly point, Kynance Cove just 10 minutes along the cliff is a secluded haven among the craggy rocks. In fair weather at low tide its a cosy retreat - think Poldark and Demelza on an afternoon outing, in stormy weather its well avoided, more suited wreckers and their kin. There are also... More

This is the mot southerly point in the country. There road to Lizard point car park is quite narrow. The car park has a charge. We came here about 10 years ago and I’m sure there was only one café on site, but now there are two. There was a National trust person on the cliff top talking about the... More

I loved it here.This was my first time coming to this beautiful place and It took my breath away. Just make sure you are off the beach before the tide comes in as it covers the whole beach. The sea water was clear and very blue it was beautiful. I strongly recommend a visit to this beach.

Although we had already visited a couple of times previously, we couldn't resist another, especially as we are members of the National Trust & therefore get free parking. The parking for Kynance Cove is down a long remote lane: in fact it feels as if you'll be driving forever, however once there you will find plenty of parking spaces. There... More
