We had come on a camping trip to Cornwall and had looked up Kynance Cove as part of our 'to do' list with the pictures being beautiful. I was a little concerned about how steep the walk would be, given that I am not particularly...More

It was ok, loads of parking, free if national trust members, steep walk down to cove. Whilst it is picturesque i'm not sure all the hype was justified. Sure there are some interesting gullies and caves but its small, way too busy and the cafe...More

The Cornish coast, (there may be a slight bias here), has some of the most spectacular scenery in Britain. Even if the weather is bad it has something special but when it's a perfect day with blue skies, warm sunshine and clear air it really...More

We visited on Friday and parked up in the village as we didn't know where we were going particularly. We then walked down the road following the sign for the lighthouse. It's about a 15 minute gentle stroll. Everywhere is really well signposted by the...More

Easy to get to - make sure you get there early though into the main car park, you certainly don't want to be in the overflow car park which is a mile away! Difficult to get down to with prams etc on the main route...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.
