Been coming to Cornwall many times over for 50 years, how could I have missed this place? Stunningly beautiful on a sunny cold January day. Dramatic scenery which words cannot describe.

This such a beautiful and rugged place. The walk down to beach can be a bit tricky but well worth the effort. The beach between the cliff and the island which becomes visible when the tide goes out is surreal. This place is well worth the visit.

One of the most beautiful places you can see in terms of natural beauty. My boyfriend and I spent the whole day hiking and ended up at Kynance Cove....and it was probably one of the most amazing things I have done. The cliffs and the views are awe-inspiring. When I got back home I thought to myself "Did i really... More

We visited the cove in December there were very few people there. The weather was not great but it was interesting to watch the waves pounding the coast.

Only beach I like more was Porthcurno. Very busy and limited beach space at high tide. Very popular during the summer months.

With a 2 and 3 year old this was quite a trike but was completely worth it once we got to the beach. The cafe was delicious too and we were very very happy to see pasties on the menu.

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

Kynance Cove - wow, just wow! Blue seas, white sands, dramatic scenery - what more could you ask for? My husband now says this is his favourite place in the whole world, as keen travels that is saying something!

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...
