A superb walk between the Lizard and Kynance Cove offering stunning views. At the cove you can go down to explore. Look out for seals bottling as you walk.

Magical spot, but does get busy. Low tide access only, but so so worth it. Caves and tunnels to explore, choice of beaches. lots of people set up at the bottom of the steps from the NT car park ... make the efforst to walk around to the far bay for a quieter experience, but watch out for falling rocks...

Great views but make sure you notice the path for buggies if you have young children as the steps path is rather steep. When the tide comes in it's a bit frightening on the beach but amazing spectacle when the waves hit the rocks. We had a lot of sea foam from the runoff caused by rain, so best to... More

Went as a family of two adults and 13 yr old twins and we could navigate the slippery rocks down to the beach fairly well in trainers and diving shoes. However saw a few young toddlers and children falling over or stubbing their toes as they had unsuitable or open toe sandals on. Some adult guests will find the journey... More

We walked from the Lizard Lighthouse to Kynance Cove and back with our 4 and 8 year olds, a long walk but totally worth it! Highly recommended. Make sure you visit the café at Kynance Cove!

We were up at 2am friday, for the journey to Trigaminion Sparrow Tree Hse (airbnb) and The Lizard. We paused for an early morning - testicle burning - swim at a fun little cove with decent cafe in Falmouth. Loved it. A half mile walk along the headland and then on to St Keverne near Parthallow cove. St Keverne has... More

Lizard Point. Stunning as ever. Not over commercialised as Lands End is now. Unable to visit Kynance this time as unfortunately no dogs allowed for some reason.

The whole Lizard Peninsula is beautiful, but Kynance Cove can get very busy in the summer. Also look at the tide tables, although at high tide you can walk from the car park to Lizard Point and wait for the tide to go out. I would advise taking the longer walk down to the beach as the short path can... More
