We went to Kynance Cove on a beautiful sunny day, with a huge sea swell, the day before the storm came. It was stuuning, seeing the waves crash against the cliffs, with the spray reaching to top of them. BTW, the pasty at the NT café there was excellent!

Not the first time we have been here but this place is just something truly special and has amazing views. A nice relaxing stroll to the beach where we ate pasties drank coffee and just enjoyed the waves crashing in. Perfection

The location is spectacular but parking the car is difficult. Signage is not great the car park only takes about 40 cars and was full when we went midweek in March so summer must be horrific; the road access is narrow and the car park machine takes coin or Pay by Mobile only. Problem is there us no Internet signal so no coins you cannot pay. NT need to allow card payment and expands the car park. Toilets are good though.
Otherwise the views and location are good.

Kynance Cove only. Brilliant, only four other people and dogs on the beach, and as a bonus it was low tide. I love this place.
How can people make down coastline and beaches like this for lack of disabled access? It’s a beach. At the bottom of a rock face! Dear oh dear.
Anyway. Let’s keep it a secret. It’s awful when it’s full of tourists.

The walk down is hard. The walk back up is a battle of will. But the beach is absolutely out of this world and completely worth it. Water is shallow so felt safe to let children into the water further than we normally would. Theres a few cave systems to have a look into to and a cafe just next to the beach too

The views here are spectacular. The Kynance cafe is brilliant, whether for a bacon roll in the morning or a cream tea in the afternoon. The walk to the lighthouse and a couple of other superb cafes is our favourite. This time we were surrounded by a dozen Choughs .... astonishing ... the result of less intensive farming, the NT team told us.

this cove is wonderful...we were lucky to get a peaceful weekday and I had thought unlucky to get it when raining....but that made it all the more dramatic, dreamy, peaceful.

Worth taking the walk on the cliffside from Lizard point....brisk wind and plenty of fresh air....wonderful!

I walked along the coastal path between Lizard and Kynance Cove. It was absolutely beautiful and one of the highlights of my trip in the end. Apart from the stunning views, I saw a seal...and a lot of brown cows.
The path is a bit tough in places. You obviously need good shoes and I would say to be a little bit physically able. They're doing some improvement work to the path in places but there's a way around it. Don't do what I did and not wear suncream even if you think it's going to be grey.
I didn't like the look of Lizard itself. It had the air of a rundown fair with lots of tacky souvenir shops and things like that but at least there're toilets which are always useful. Actually, I found there were a lot of public toilets in Cornwall generally.
I travelled by bus so this is where I arrived and then I picked up the coastal path. At Kynance Cove it's possible to catch the bus without having to return to Lizard. If you follow the cars out of the car park to the main road (Kynance Cove Turn), there're no bus stops marked but, if you wave the bus down, it will stop.
There're also toilets at Kynance Cove as well as a café. They had sold out of the main items by the time I got there but it's a good spot to have a rest while enjoying the view. They were pretty friendly and pointed me in the right direction for the bus. As an aside, they sell water in cans which I've never seen before.

Loved the many shops around the green, good walk down to the point, with good paths around the great viewing areas. Really lovely autumn colours and saw seals too. The farm shop on the way back is well worth a visit too.
