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.

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!

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