Lizard point which is a short walk or drive from the village has stunning views. There is a small cove there and an abandoned lifeboat station to create atmosphere. You can often see seals and it's beautiful whatever the weather. The cafe there is good and you can sit outside on the terrace and take in the amazing views.

There are plenty of National Trust car parks around to park in and a couple of cafes as well, although they may not be open out of season. The views from the top of the cliffs are good but have a walk down to the old lifeboat station to see some real history.

Lovely to be with my girlfriend IVY! You can walk for miles and miles, and its a really decent walk with lots of viewpoints which are breathtakingly good.

this area of cornwall is absolutely breathtaking in its rugged natural state. an outstanding example of cornish coastline that is free from the tourist tat that you can find at lands end. there are a number of shops in the area where you are able to buy souvenir items made of serpentine stone, which is found around the lizard coastline,...

Delightful little cove, great place to enjoy the late afternoon sun and a few waves. Don't get cut off or caught out by the tide though!

Many would hesitate to go far south of Conrwell where 'the Lizard' located. So did I.. But when you first face with the scenery, You will be soon regretted all you doubts and sorry for the view! I've been traveling a lot from Asia to Europe, but this is definitely a unique view you could get from UK, and any... More

It is great to say you have been someone different and here the usp is it being the southernmost spot in England. The scenery is spectacular and there was a seal 'sleeping' a few yards out to sea. October is part of the breeding season so they prefer you just to watch from the cliffs rather than go on the... More

Saw the lizard on a distinctly horrendous day. But all the more powerful and awe inspiring because of it. As we marvelled, the coastguard helicopter flew by, hovered and gave us a wave. Beautiful scenery and a real joy!

We visited the Lizard and Kynance Cove on the same day. This involved a lot of walking and is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties, but we persevered. They are both must see places, Lizard because it is the most southerly point of the UK and Kynance because it is just so beautiful. Anyone with walking problems or a... More
