Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Cornwall / Lizard / National Trust - Lizard Point and Kynance Cove
The southernmost peninsula of the British mainland, The Lizard has a remote, wild quality that attracts visitors year-round. Take in the dramatic coastal scenery walking along the west coast's paths or wander through ancient woodlands around the Helford River on the east coast. Activities abound, including cycling, kayaking, and rock-pooling. Visit the Marconi Centre at Poldhu to learn about the birthplace of modern communication. In summer, choose from numerous beaches, including Kynance Cove, voted one of the world's most beautiful coastal spots. After a short climb down the heather-dappled hillside, you'll discover turquoise waters, serpentine rocks, and a white, sandy beach. Have a cup of tea or sample local Cornish fare at Kynance Cafe, serving food from Easter to November. Check tide information in advance, since in spring waters tend to submerge the beach. Put National Trust - Lizard Point and Kynance Cove and other Lizard attractions into our Lizard trip builder site, and watch your holiday take shape.
National Trust - Lizard Point and Kynance Cove reviews
Absolutely superb, what a proper beautiful place! Totally stunning, plus we were lucky to have a crisp clear sunny day for our visit. If you like taking a good pic take a decent camera, you wont be... more »
A gorgeous cove, very popular, so the car park gets full quite early in the morning. We visited towards the end of the afternoon so didn’t struggle to get a place. Free to National Trust members... more »
Lovely peaceful place, there's parking and you can walk down to see spectacular views and have a picnic or eat at the cafe, there is a steep trail down that had a few steps but there is a hand rail. Also if you prefer you can sit on a bench to enjoy the views without walking all the way down. A short 10 minutes walk will take you to the small village that has some really great shops, with unusual gifts, stones and pottery. There are also some nice places to eat. If you like you can climb the lighthouse and enjoy the small museum.
Lovely spot to sit and watch the seals. Plenty of coastal walks if you are feeling energetic. You can climb the lighthouse but if you want to do this I would go there first and find out what times the tours are. Clean toilets in the car park, two cafes and a few little shops selling local artists work. The little shop at the top supports the Cornwall Seal Group Trust and will happily talk to you about the seals.
