Fantastic few hours visiting Lizard and Kynance Cove. Spectacular views of the cliffs and vibrant green waters. Great on a sunny day for a nice walk with an ice cream!

It's odd that the Lizard and Kynance Cove are put together. The Lizard is a large area with various villages and sites that deserve exploration. We drove around and made our way to Lizard Point which is also where the Lighthouse is (listed as a...More

2 different places! I found Kynance to be more impressive and stunning but a more strenuous walk and Lizard was such a easy walk with breathing taking views. Visited with my dogs and they had a good time too! Definitely coming back again!!!

This beach is beyond incredible. I didn’t get my hopes up enough for this! Absolutely amazing! Definitely my favourite beach. Not only is the sand lovely, the water is crystal but the views themselves are out of this world! You would not believe it’s England!...More
