Less commercialized that Lands End, though still very busy (even off-season). But the views are great, and easy walks that still feel dramatic. Kynance Cove is an exciting, if packed, place, with lots to explore - good little beach for children to play on, whilst adults can admire the crashing waves.

Nice place with stunning views and scenery and walks to match. Much much nicer than lands end and no where near as commercialized. Had to chuckle at the car park pay and display sign that someone had written in marker pen not to pay and display as there is free parking by the cafe....and there is! I'm guessing that may... More

The Lizard Peninsula is beautiful, so much nicer than Land’s End. We visited the Lizard and Kynance Cove while on holiday in Cornwall. There were spectacular views from the clifftop and the walk from the car park down to the beach was a bit strenuous and quite steep. However, when you get there you will be glad you made the...

The most southerly point of the British mainland remains unspoiled and makes a really good place to visit for Walkers, Birders, young and old, anyone in fact who can appreciate the natural majesty of the area. Befitting its remoteness you should expect the roads to reach it to be tight and the occasional passing places on the often single track... More

As usual any property run by The National Trust will have superb Views, The Lizard did not fail, nice litrtle Cafe at the top serving a very good selection of food we did not eat here but the Menu looked very extensive

A lovely place for a walk along the coastal path. Kynance Cove is an attractive small beach. Great views - very blowy on the cliffs when we went, despite the sunshine. If you walk far enough you can visit Marconi's huts where he carried out his radio experiments.
