Definately with a visit to kynance cove. Probably one if the most picturesque beaches anywhere, we absolutely love it and visit a couple of times a year. Can get busy in the summer though but still worth a look. Also has a nice little cafe.

If you are in the area of the Lizard, you must visit Kynance Cove. With it's blue sea, golden sand and colourful cliffs, Kynance provides typical 'picture postcard' views. It is great in the summer for family time on the beach or exploring the caves at low tide.

Wow - what a view. Perched up on a cliff top overlooking the beach and the blue Atlantic, this couldn't be any more spectacular! The coffee and cakes are wonderful, as is everything else served from this little cafe. The National Trust are so clever in retaining the natural ambience of their land and buildings, although the walk down to the cove and climb up to the cafe could not be done by any other than the able bodied. There is a separate drive/pathway down for the physically challenged, but it's still a bit hairy walking down to the benches. Nevertheless, a wonderful place to visit - on a sunny day it's hard to believe you're in England and not somewhere in the Carribean!
Highly recommended, especially when the tide's out.

A lovely walk down to the Lizard. Park up in the centre or, for those who don't want to walk as far or are unable, there is a pay and display carpark at the lighthouses. The walk from the centre of the village is easy and quite flat, there is a separate path next to the road to the other carpark which makes it safe as the road is very narrow. In the village are several gift type shops, restaurants, coffee shops, pubs, no need to go hungry or thirsty! We love the fresh, hot pasties from Ann's, just follow the signs, it doesn't look like you're walking down someone's garden to a garage and I guess not too many years ago that's what it was, the pasties are very tasty indeed. Anyway, back to the walk down to the point, follow the path, it's not really that far, you do get to some steepish steps, but there is a ramped path also, you are now almost at the most southernly point of Britain. Surprisingly there is a tea shop there serving food and cream teas, there is a National Trust "shed" where you can get info about the area and other National Trust properties/gardens/coast lines in the area and postcards. If you are up for a longer walk, you can follow the coast round to Kynance Cove which is stunning, but if you can't walk that far simply drive a little further round the coast, it's well worth a visit. The views from the Lizard are amazing and so many sea birds to be spotted. It can be very breezy at the point, hold on to your hats!
