Cornish born and never been here before! Day trip from Lelant and oh what a day. This place is magical. At the most southerly part of England. I imagine it may be busy in the summer but Kynance is a sight to behold. Surrounded by nothing but heathy moorland, the silence of the 21st Century is greatly appreciated. Quite steep... More

This is an interesting cove as it is completely Eco friendly. No Telegraph wires, stream water used to flush the toilets and the roof of the Café tiled in Solar tiles

We came to this as part of the coastal path walk. It is lovely but a nearby car park means it is busy and somewhat spoilt by the amount of people.

A place I visit every year I go to Cornwall. This place has some amazing views and a place could you could spend the day dependant on tide times and weather! On a stormy day the waves crash against the rocks and it is awesome. The cafe serves amazing cream teas 🙂

You have a beautiful view from the Lizard Point. It would be nice to have a bit more information about it in the park. The sightseeing tour in the lighthouse was brilliant, very well done.

We visited on a Tuesday in October. Parking was £2 for two hours or£4 for the day until 8pm. There were two paths down to the beach area. We walked down the stroller/wheelchair "easy" path and came back up the more direct path. Both paths are extremely steep with lots of loose gravel. Proper foot wear is essential. The view... More
