We walked down to Lizard from the NT car park, it took less than ten minutes, and were lucky enough to find a spot on a rock just as the sun was setting. Beautiful!

We were lucky to have clear blue skies and deep blue sea so the walk down to Kynance cove was memorable in itself, but the beach and the rocks and caves were totally captivating. Make sure that you go at low tide or you will miss these. Impressive, overwhelming, words fail me. The combination of sandy beach and wonderful shaped... More

Lizard Point was very windy cliffs but with great views and possibility to visit the Lizard Lighthouse. Keynance Cove is like the jewel in a crown. I wish I could to stay there longer...beautiful beach, pure water and green cliffs. Love it :)

We visited kynance Cove after vising the Lizard. You can walk from the Lizard along the coastal path but we drove down. Expensive National trust car park (£3.80). Ten minute walk from the car park down to the cove. Spectacular views once at the cove, rugged large rocks with the sea crashing in. The Cafe overlooks the small beach, most... More

The Lizard is a popular part of Cornwall - including the most southerly point in the country, Lizard Point. There is plenty to see and do in this area. For Lizard Point you can navigate narrow lanes to reach a large National Trust-run car park (£3-4), or even venture right down to the tiny car park at the Point. I'd... More

Kynance Cove, a mile or two north of the Lizard,is one of Cornwall's prettiest sites - and it has great competition! The walk down to the cove is a bit steep but although I have vertigo it caused no problems. The tearoom there, overlooking a lovely beach with soft sands and lots of rocks, is a delight: friendly staff, good... More

You must visit this cove, it is only accessable by walking, tide permitting take one route down and the other route back, lovely beach at the bottom together with a cafe. Pushchairs can be taken down one of the routes, which is sign posted accordingly. The views are lovely, some of the best in Cornwall. If it is high tide... More

Our 2nd day of week long holiday - toss up between Seal Sanctuary and Kynance Cove. Kynance cove it was. We are so glad that we chose to go. The weather was perfect, very warm, we arrived at the car park (National Trust) - great as members we got to park for free. Parking staff very efficient - small chage... More

The Lizard is a great, slightly more remote spot, I n the southern tip of Cornwall. Kynance Cove is by far the most beautiful place there. It can be busy in the summer but still has a lovely quiet and relaxed feel. The walk down is fine, but may be tough if you struggle to walk a little. It is... More

Just the most beautiful spot and unspoilt. Kept in good order by the National Trust. Great for walking along the paths. Great to see the sea birds and seals. NT volunteers on hand to explain viewings.
