Walked through. The tide was high so unable to see the extent of the sand. It looks like a beautiful spot but I am advised that it has become a victim of its beauty in the summer as hordes of people flock here. However, visually...More

You simply cannot beat this particular coastline, an area of outstanding natural beauty it certainly lives up to this epithet. It is my favourite part of the British Isles by a long way. On a sunny day, the clear turquoise water can fool you into...More

We visited on a beautiful October day having walked from Lizard Point. The sea was still warm and the cove is just so typical cornish. We managed to leave just befire the tide cut us off!

We visited on a rainy day - the wind and the rain contributed to an exhilarating experience. The beach and rocks are spectacular Unfortunately the Cafe was closed on the day of our visit.

Arrived here early which was fortunate as it got quite busy. It is a beautiful, picturesque area. A pleasant walk to the little gift shop and cafe. Interesting that they had a swallows nest in the entrance to the toilets. Wonderful to see them popping...More

This place is truly breathtaking. We visited today in beautiful sunshine and fortunately, the tide was right out, revealing the cove at its most glorious. The apricot sand is a perfect contrast to the blues of the sea, with caves and multi coloured rocks to...More

Nice relaxing walk down to cove. Not to be rushed as walk down is quiet rough, even on the easy route. Ok for buggies but only the off road type, even then it would be hard going. National trust run but thankfully not over commercialised...More

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.
