Get there early and set up close to the cliffs, the tide comes in quite far! Cafe is lovely if a little bit pricey, but they have the monopoly so I don't blame them

We had a great walk along the coast from this cove, you can walk for miles, it would also be a brill place to run. The water is tempting but cold - so be prepared! There's a cafe with good cakes... A nice place to visit.

You need to be a reasonable walker as it is approx 10- 15 mins. Cafe and gift shop at cliffs. Lighthouse further up. Nice walk on a sunny day

This is a spectacular place for sea and cliff views, made better by the wild flowers. Some nice gentle walks (a little steep in places). The old life boat station is amazing to walk down too, can't imagine how they were ever able to launch from there.

The cafe at Kynance Cove churning out great food to the hoards of beach goers - we were told this was a quiet day! Great cake and cups of tea and ice cream = fantastic!

The Lizard is always worth a visit at any time of the year. In fact sometimes being there in the wind and rain adds to its magnificence. W were lucky enough to see seals this time just at the waters edge. The little cafe shack sells the most excellent crab sandwiches - even if they were £8.50 each! Having taken... More

I visited the area as a kid and I remember it being wonderful. Nothing has changed, great views and quirky little shops, but not really for the techno generation. Driving to the Point or Lighthouse is via tight single track lanes and the parking is incredibly limited, not at all suitable for people with mobility issues. One essential tip, take... More

Stunning scenery. Kynance Cove gets extremely busy, overcrowded, and car parking (by English Heritage) costs. Lovely cafe there serving good fare. The walk from Lizard to Kynance Cove is beautiful, but does involve getting over stiles.

Kynance is one of the most beautiful beaches in England. It is a shame that the big storms have thrown up lots of rocks which makes bathing and getting round to the beach with the caves a bit more hazardous. Time your visit carefully the beach all but disappears when the tide comes in. It is a steep climb down... More
