A spectacular cove to visit. NT car park so great if you're a member as it's free, otherwise you have to pay. A bit of an walk down to beach area so not so good if you need level access. Rocky and very uneven underfoot but once down it's out of this world. A beautiful place, can get busy at... More

Lovely beach with a great cafe but both get busy when it's sunny. Which is fine if the tide is out, less so when it is in; there is nothing but stones. That said the cliffs are beautiful and it is still worth a visit. By the way, get the right path to the beach, if the tide is in... More

A regular visit while on our hols. £5 a day to park but took advantage of our NT membership so it was free. A bit of a walk to the beach but worth it getting there - beautiful clean beach, toilet and cafe. The ONLY downside is that everyone else also rates this beach so space was tight in the... More

What an amazing place. If you like walking you will absolutely love this national trust walk. Dramatic coast lines and picturesque views. I went along with my husband and 3 children aged 5,6 and 12. We had a picnic up on the top of the clifftops and walked down onto the beach cove so the kids could have a swim.... More

We spent the most incredibly sunny Friday afternoon taking in the sights at Kynance Cove and were simply blown away by it's stunning beauty. The water looked so beautiful it was almost impossible not to dive straight in! I've visited many beautiful beaches in Cornwall but this must be the most spectacular of them all. Will definitely return next year... More

I visited kynance cove with my husband and 3 boys ages 1,4 and 7 and wasn't dissapointed. You need to get there early to get a car park space as it's limited we got caught out one day at 11.15 it was full so returned the following day at 10.15 and parked with no problems. The car park was approx... More

Dramatic cliffs, white sand, turquoise water and green land, all in the same place. Kynance Cove is beautiful and unique, and the view you get from the top of the cliffs is just spectacular. Bear in mind that this place attracts a lot of visitors and that the car park has limited spaces, so be patient (specially if it's a... More

This is what several locals said about the Lizard and Kynance Cove. The thing is, that's what makes it! There's no hype or noise - just raw natural beauty. OK, and a lot of steps. The coastal path was just too scary so we drove up to Kynance Cove and paid into the National Trust car park. At least you... More

Visited Kynance Cove last week and it was just as stunning as we thought it would be. Be warned is you have any limited mobility as the walk is quite heavy going down to the cove. There is a longer access walk (15mins) but the view at the end is thoroughly worth it. The café at the top of the... More
