Overview

A gentle stroll on the South West Coast Path to one of Britain’s most spectacular coves, whose red and green serpentine rocks are as beautifully carved and polished by the sea as the Victorian stoneware once produced by the nearby Poltesco factory. The walk follows the path through the rare Cornish heath above the cove to Tor Balk, where there are spectacular views down over Kynance Cove.

Worth the walk for 15 minutes each way, between parking and beach. Beach is located between big rocks. Turquoise-blue water. Good beach. I went on a weekday first week of June. Already, the chairs available between the café and the beach were quite populated. Must...More

Pretty muddy in parts even on the main path when we did it, especially trying to loop back to Lizard without retracing our steps / going along the road.

A friend recommended we go to Kynance Cove during our time I’m Cornwall. The scenery is absolutely amazing, words simply can not describe how beautiful it is. Pictures do not do it any justice, you have to go there to see it with your own...More

This is one of my favourite places in Cornwall, Kynance Cove is beautiful, and I enjoyed sitting in a deckchair overlooking the sea having a beer, I don’t normally drink beer but it seems perfect. Prepare to do some walking but it’s worth it. Lizard...More

Kynance cove is just along from the Lizard and must be one of the most beautiful coves in the country. Although my road atlas only showed the access road as a bit of a track, it is actually a very good, and pretty wide road,...More

There is nowhere more idyllic than Kynance Cove and the Lizard. We got the bus to Poldhu Cove and walked back along the South West Caostal Path to the Enoch Vean B&B at The Lizard, via Polurrian Cove, Mullion, Mullian and Kynance Cove. Truly breathtaking...More

Wow, the best natural landmark in Cornwall. If you don't want the long walk, park at NT car park and follow the low tide route in and the high tide route back. Check tide times before leaving!! Go at low tide and enjoy the beach,...More
