Definitely worth a visit! It's hard to believe this lovely cove is in the UK. The walk down to the cove isn't too bad but might be a struggle with a pushchair as it's down quite a slope!

Lovely views from top. You will need to be steady on your feet and be prepared to walk up some steep slopes on way back up. Lovely and sandy beach, but keep an eye on tides as could get cut off.

As a child I remember being entranced by Kynance Cove, so visiting today brought those memories back. We arrived early and walked down to the beach with some amazing views as the high tide came in. The waves were powerful and we didn't risk crossing...More

Don't waste your time going to Land's End. The Lizard is a great little village with lots to see and do. The parking is by contribution and right in the centre, but you have the option of parking closer to Lizard Point. The scenery at...More

Wonderful walk with friends and family from the Lizard to Kynance Cove. One of the most beautiful spots in the UK

I think we're spoiled by the Scottish coast, including that of her Isles where we've spent a lot of time, because while the coast walk from Kynance to Lizard and a bit beyond was pretty and interesting, it didn't exactly blow us away. Kynance Cove...More

We visited the Lizard this summer and we thought it was beautiful. We much preferred both the views and the atmosphere to Land's End which is often better known. Can't wait to return.

Yes, coastal paths are brilliant. You can get to the cage at Kynace Cove just not onto the beach

I would say not wheelchairs but if you can manage a little bit of walking you might be ok as it's not far from car park to cafe to see the views.

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.
