Love it so much. Been there more times than i can count. Kynance Cove although tidal is well worth the climb down the path. I you got National trust membership parking is free but is still 1/4 mile walk.

Loved it in and around Lizard Point.....walking down to the old lifeboat station, exploring the little rock pools and caverns. Walked along the coast past the lighthouse, for roughly two miles...the scenery is spectacular, and there are isolated beaches and coves which are accessible, albeit a bit steep in places, but worth the effort!! Take your walking shoes!! There's a... More

I walked to Kyance Cove along the SW Coastal Path from the Lizard Cottages with a group of friends in Mid Jan 2015.

The last bit... More

The coastal walk in this area was particularly scenic, we chanced upon 3 choughs, birds which are just returning to the area. We had walked from Mullion Cove, along the coast into Kynance Cove, the water was crystal clear and sparkling. There were many day trippers at The Lizard so it was crowded, however the next morning early, we could... More

Not too far from the parking lot, this popular cove is a bit of a problem getting to for those people who are limited in mobility but definitely worth it if you can do it. The scenery from the top of the cliffs is breathtaking and there is a small bench to sit on and admire the view even if... More

Great place to visit, next time will be in summer most things open March anyway. Dogs are welcomed in the pubs,cafes etc which was a great change. Easy going great for walks! Recommend Henrys campsite!

This is a most beautiful place with gorgeous beaches and lovely little coves, It has the most breath taking scenery and views and the sea is just mesmerising on a good clear day where its waves just lap up and down. Its a great favourite of mine to be frank. One I have been too many times over many years.... More

We'd been told by family to visit kynance cove whilst we were on holiday in Cornwall. Well after the trek down there we were immediately impressed by the stunning scenery. You'd think it was tropical...with the crystal clear waters. Recommend to anyone

unspoilt countryside, hidden coves and beaches, fabulous walks and great photo opportunities. In Summer spectacular flora a fauna, visit local pubs for excellent seafood. Not fr from St Ives for a bit of artistic culture and retail outlets.
