Kynance cove is a must see if in Cornwall. A beautiful beach and setting. Easy to find if driving and parking wasn't a issue.

We fell upon this beautiful place by chance but wow! What a find. The beach is so interesting and full of places to explore. The beach is too far of track for screaming kids so it's perfect!

The Lizard is a breathtakingly beautiful place, and it left us mesmerised. The cliff drop is amazing and the sea is gorgeously turquoise. We chose to park for free in the village and walk to the Lizard point. Even though there is a paid car park at the very Point (free for National Trust members like us), the trek from... More

We love going to Kynance Cove when visiting Cornwall. It is a short walk down to the beach but well worth it. It is stunning.

Beautiful views of truly beautiful coastline. Nice big car park (£4 charge going towards the national trust) with two main walks down to the cove. The walks are 8 and 15 mins and the longer is suitable for pushchairs and is accessible even at high tide. Lovely cafe/coffeshop nestled in the cove with tables and benches for you to sit... More

Kynance cove is a beautiful place to visit however I would not recommend taking small children as it very very steep I myself was skidding down the path. The views on top of the cove are simply stunning, there are steps which lead down to a beach however is all pebbles and we didn't go down that far as the... More

The most amazing sunsets - a wonderful way for the sky to meet the sea. It is all over too soon, but there's always tomorrow.

(1stly if you're going to this area it is worth joining national trust - in a week, through parking & entrance fees, the membership has already 50% paid for itself) The main draw for this area is the chance of seeing a Chough. The views are quite stunning, and there is no mass tourist nonsense (like Land's End), lovely walks... More

We popped down to the Lizard and enjoyed some wonderful scenery looking back towards the lighthouse and then going down to see the ruined buildings down near the water. We decided to pop in to Kynance Cove and that was quite stunning. We were there at the end of the day, there was hardly anyone around, and it was absolutely... More

Kynance Cove is a pretty placed owned by the National Trust. Although it cost money for parking, I think it was worth it as it's truly a wonderful sight although quite steep on the way down. The beach is great, and makes for a fun day out with the kids. You can walk to Lizard from here as well, which... More
