Absolutely breathtaking. I’ve visited quite a few times in the past and brought my girlfriend (London based) on this occasion. We had the best time. Yes, it’s quiet but you don’t come here for anything else other than just THAT, as well as the lovely...More

Some of the best views I’ve seen. Great trails and amazing blue Krystle clear sea. A great cliff top restaurant with massive home made pasties. Great to take the dog just not on the actual beach. Highly recommended

Probably from the beach at the Lizard, next to the old lifeboat station, there is a good path from the NT car park and it's shorter than the one to Kynance
