We visited both Kynance Cove and the Lizard today. It was a beautiful February day, and we sat on the beach at Kynance Cove eating our lunch in T-shirts! I would imagine this place looks lovely whatever the weather though.

We parked in the village and took the short walk down to Lizard point. A lovely walk down on a path separated from the road. ( The only downside being the amount of dog mess-yuk! Why do people think it's ok to leave it there?) There are plenty of benches to sit on and admire the view. We had a... More

My partner and I walked the whole Lizard coastline stopping at Kynance Cove. Absolutely stunning! The walk was amazing! You need to witness the beauty for yourselves. You won't be disappointed! Love Cornwall.

Here is a peaceful peninsula with so much natural beauty that it is bound to be the perfect retreat for many outdoor fans. Come at any time of the year, bring your walking boots and waterproofs and get out there on the coastal trail. Kynance Cove is the jewel in the crown. Low tide reveals a beautiful sandy beach whilst... More

Quite a walk from the car park but the views are well worth the walk, the sea is crystal clear , refreshments are available on site.

This was my first trip to Cornwall and the Lizard was an absolutely beautiful place! Surprisingly, there wasn't a cloud in the sky during my visit. It made for an amazing visit. I couldn't walk 20 feet without stopping to take more pictures. There were very few people there, so we basically had the trail to ourselves. You can walk... More

If you plan a trip to Cornwall, then a visit to The Lizard and Kynance Cove should be seriously considered! Although there could be many visitors around and finding parking might be difficult sometime. It's all worth it! Especially Kynance Cove is a well hidden, but spectacular spot! The walk down to the beach of Kynance Cove is steep, but... More

The most beautiful place in the World. At the end of a private road belonging to the National Trust. Good for a picnic or a walk and when the tide is right, a swim.

My boyfriend and I travelled here to see the beach at the lizard and we were not disappointed. The sea views are spectacular and the cliff paths are easily accessible. There are toilets that are open even in winter and the cattle nearby are very friendly and nice to look at or touch as I did.

If in Lizard, can't afford to miss it. Beautiful view, clean beach and blue water present a most desirable view on a sunny day. This is a good place to walk, to sit and to relax. We visited it on a warm sunny day and were rewarded with some the best views ever seen in the life.
