Lizard Point, beautiful. As for Kynance Cove I think I need to go just an hour later - apparently the picturesque ‘Caribbean’ type scenes are only during low tide... I kept track of it online and thought half hour or so wouldn’t make a difference...More

What a beautiful photogenic part of Great Britain! If you haven’t visited this part of Cornwall you are missing a gem for unspoilt natural scenery and lovely walks. Make sure you visit Anne’s Pasties too for the best Cornish pasties on the planet!!

Looked at the beach from the car park and thought it would be too much of a challenge to get down to. However although it was a struggle it was worth it. Lovely cove and scenery

If you go down the steps at kynance cove, be wary that it's not easy to then get onto the beach. You need to climb over loads of rocks so this is not ideal for people who are not good on their feet. The beach...More

Kynance Cove is beautiful, but be warned it is a long walk from the car park to the beech. The views from the Lizzard are the best to be found. Have coffee or a meal at Polpeor Cafe, sit on the terrace at the back...More

You've got to see this place. Words will not do it justice. We were very luck to visit during a heat wave at the height of summer and the scenes were unbelievable! A lovely descending walk down the hillside leading to picturesque coves with golden...More

Probably from the beach at the Lizard, next to the old lifeboat station, there is a good path from the NT car park and it's shorter than the one to Kynance
