Kynace cove is beautiful, defo worth a visit. You can walk from lizard point to Kynace cove via one of the costal paths. We went into the lighthouse, which was informative. We saw some sea lions at lizard point too.

Kynance Cove varies greatly with the tides and weather, but fantastic walks and views whenever. At high tide the sands are entirely covered and the waves can be incredible as they roar into the bay and up the rocky channels and then thunder the pebbles as they rip back out. At low tide the sands are lovely and stretch out,... More

We visited here, after a bit of walking down the hill, we were greeted by the most amazing views, the coast line is so rugged and so comforting and interesting to watch, lush sand. Loved every minute we spent here, it a must visit!

Be prepared to spend 3 hours or more here. Take your time to walk down Kynance Cove to Lizard Point, and you will be well rewarded with the views, which were absolutely stunning and breathtaking. If you go down to the beach at Kynance Cove, make sure you use the washroom because the next one is really far away.

Having seen some truly magnificent places in Cornwall, we were expecting great things of The Lizard and Kynance Cove, but gosh were we disappointed. We should have watched for the warning signs as you get nearer the Lizard, the pretty verges and wild flowers suddenly stop and are replaced by gorse. I know it's the natural environment for the place,... More

We have been on a number of occasions, taking visitors there in particular. No-one can believe the colour of the sea at Kynance Cove, and swimming there is wonderful. Don't go without your camera you will regret it. You just have to be aware of tide times.

A really wonderful location. The beach at Kynance is lovely when the tide is out, with golden sand. If you park at the National Trust car park at Kynance, there is a lovely walk across the cliffs to the Lizard, with beautiful views. Have lunch at the Lizard village and then walk back on the inland path to Kynance -... More

Great views and interesting walk, although not so good for those who are unstable on their feet or have trouble walking as it has steep areas.
