Most interesting experience was chatting to the volunteer, one of 33 who act as watchers from Bass Point. I found their dedication humbling in this mercenary world and I really enjoyed my chat and learnt a lot in a short space of time. That day the liftboat had been sent out to rescue a yacht and the helicopter went to... More

Nice cafe's at the Lizard, See Choughs. But the walk to Kinance is quite superb,with the little gem of Kinance Cove and beach at the end of it, But its not the end because you have it all to do again on the equally spectacular return walk.

Lovely part of the coast path. Great wildlife. There is a National Trust hut at The Lizard which is free to all and a ranger will talk and show you some of the wildlife. On the day we were there we saw Seals and there had also been a peregrine falcon circling overhead!

The Lizard was the first of three stops on a day tour of three coastal villages in Cornwall. The walk towards the point only takes about 5-10 minutes and there are many photo ops along the way. Worth taking a look!

Firstly The Lizard, so many good places to eat, friendly & helpful locals. So many different walks, long all day, or short half day. The scenery and light is great, we have seen seals and porpoises over the years. The Cornish Chough is back you can see them soaring around the rocky crags. Lots of beaches & coves to choose...

Stunning place, amazing views of the coast - the cliffs, the colours of the sea, the sandy beach - spend time with nature, breathe in the beauty of the landscape. Strongly recommend to stop for a couple of hours.

We went to Kynance Cove. We found this place by accident, and we were not disappointed! We spent £10, (£4 on parking, £6 on food in the cafe) and I would of easily spent double that as the place is worth it! You park at the top of a cliff and pay the national trust advisor (who was so friendly... More
