A really stunning and easy coastal path walk. Complimented by a little walk into the old bay and disused lifeboat building. Nice little cafe there too.

We of Average fitness and this was a stunning walk. Breathtaking scenery - well earnt coffee and sandwiches at the cove. You won’t be disappointed. a Moderate level walk rather than easy as bit up and down in parts and few steps to overcome.

Kynance Cove has been on my bucket list for a number of years. I found myself in Cornwall for a week as a solo traveller for the first time and decided to pay a visit this October. I arrived just after 8 am and the car park was virtually empty apart from a couple of dog walkers. The tide was on its way out so I made my way down to Kynance Cove. The beach is white sand, immaculately clean and breathtakingly scenic. I had a walk along the beach and took plenty of photographs of the rock formations, caves and the sea. As I was leaving the beach the café had obviously just opened with the smell of freshly cooked smoked bacon doing its utmost to tempt me. I walked from Kynance Cove to the lizard and the path was quite rocky and muddy in places but nothing that caused too much of an issue. The lizard itself as a small beach area near to the old lifeboat station but it’s not really somewhere that you would stop for long.

Finally managed to visit this absolutely beautiful cove. Lovely walks along the cliffs, the views are wonderful. The weather was reasonably kind, varied from short sharp showers to bright blue skies. A must visit when in Cornwall.

Absolutely stunning places to visit... whatever the weather... We started with grey skies in the morning and ended with blue skies in the afternoon - the photos are as beautiful either way! Well worth the walking to get to Kynance Cove and the ladies manning the car parks are lovely - so welcoming!
