Kynance Cove


Without doubt, the finest beach in Cornwall.

Washed clean twice a day by the sea – this beach is outstandingly beautiful.  You have to negotiate the steep but easy path to beach but it’s well worth it.  At low tide there is no beach whatsoever and the main path is inaccessible; there is however an alternative path that starts at the back of the beach.

The beach is formed from fine sand and the craggy cliffs are pierced by several caves.  There is access to the costal path, and this includes a spectacular and fairly easy going walk to the tip of the Lizard pennisular.

This is one beach where you absolutely must consult the tide tables before you contemplate a visit.



  There is a large National Trust car park on the cliffs above the beach.
  Toilets available in the car park and adjacent to the beach
  Basic food available in the beach cafe
