Just beautiful! Cannot recommend a visit here enough. We were so lucky to have such lovely weather so our visit was even better. To sit looking at the views...one of the most beautiful settings I've been to. Just go and enjoy the scenery!

Park at either of the national trust carparks (Lizard Point or Kynance). I went for the Kynance car park. Plenty of space and toilets and shared with the cliff top cattle! It's an easy walk along the coast path to Lizard Point and back again....More

Drive straight down to the cafe ignore the car park signs there is a disabled car park right by the cafe there is gravel but also concrete and tarmac so is wheelchair manageable, it is steep though, so beware.

I think you may be safer around the 11-12 mark if high tide is at 8am as it's not a very wide beach. You could always sit at the cafe and have a drink if it's still in when you get there.
