“A hell of a walk, both ways.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

Well worth the effort. There is a beautiful view from the restaurant on the cliff ( which is realy good value) and the beach is truly magical.

“England's Beauty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We had a trip to the Lizard in the middle of the July 2013 heatwave. The views were spectacular and the sea breeze was very welcome. There isn't really much else to say but it is worth a visit even if only to say you've been to England's most southerly point.

“Stunning beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

Kynance Cove is owned by the National Trust. The car park costs £4.50 for the day but it was well worth the money for such a spectacular beach which has a mixture of soft sandy bays and craggy rocks which are revealed as the tide goes out.
Practicalities:
There are toilets at the cliff top car park and more at the beach side cafe.
The cafe sells a wide variety of snacks and drinks at reasonable prices. Service was quick and friendly.
Access is tricky. It takes about 10 minutes to walk from the car park down to the beach. The path is rocky and rugged in places but it is well worth it.
Check tide times as there is virtually no beach when the tide is in.
This is the best beach we have been to in Cornwall, possibly the best in the UK!

“Beautiful views”

Gorgeous places, we went late in the day and it was very quiet. Saw seals bobbing about, which was fab.
