National Trust - Lizard Point and Kynance Cove, Lizard

#1 of 8 in Things to do in Lizard
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.

  • A beautiful part of Cornwall , a favourite of our family that we have visited on many occasions over the years. Good cafes too where you can sit and enjoy the amazing sea views while enjoying good food . Limited parking at the Lizard Point but plenty of space a little further inland at the village and there is a fairly short walkway down to the Point. Gift shops and small grocery stores, post office too. Close to many other villages and coastal walks on the Lizard peninsula. Not to be missed if you enjoy Cornwall !
  • Absolutely breathtaking. Fantastic views and great for rambling along the coastal footpaths. Parking and decent public toilets available. There is a cafe at the Lizard Point for tea, coffee and light snacks. We were fortunate to spot an adder by the footpath on the way down to the Point. If you are lucky enough to see one don't forget they are poisonous.
