Located on the Lizard peninsula, Kynance Cove is characterised by its dramatic cliffs, serpentine rock formations and breathtaking views out to sea. With its paradisiacal combination of white sand and turquoise water, at first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking that Kynance Cove was somewhere Mediterranean, especially on a sunny day.
As a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, it’s not hard to see why it is one of Cornwall’s top destinations attracting visitors near and far, and testament to that is the fact that Kynance Cove has been voted as one of Britain’s best beaches.
Visiting Kynance Cove was one of the main highlights of my recent trip down to Cornwall, especially as the weather couldn’t have been more perfect. We decided to walk along the Kynance Cove coastal path which I would highly recommend…but not before a spot of lunch over gorgeous sea views at the alfresco cafe.
The coastal views are nothing short of incredible, it’s a feast for the eyes. Also, it’s possible to walk all the way over to the Lizard Point if you follow the coastal path all the way.
Regardless of the season, Kynance Cove is a Cornish destination that has year-round appeal and is well worth a visit. It is worth noting that aside from the National Trust car park (which can often fill to capacity during the summer months) there are no others within a 1 mile vicinity.
