For so long, I’ve seen photographs of Kynance Cove and its lush turquoise waters. It’s an area along the rugged South coast of Cornwall on the Lizard peninsula. I decided to head down as the weather was beautiful and I needed to tick this off my Cornish bucket list!
Kynance Cove is part of the National Trust, you pull into the car park where you do have to pay. Once parked up, you are free to roam aimlessly. My favourite thing about this area and anywhere along the coast protected by the National Trust is the natural beauty it offers. There’s no commercialised view points or fencing, it’s all untouched and stunning in its own right.
Strolling along, the scenes are breathtaking, just as it looks in the photos! You follow the path down towards the beach and shortly find yourself at the little Kynance Cove Cafe for a drink and a pit stop. The beach is exposed at low tide or sit upon the cliff with a picnic to soak up the sun.
I had a pair of sandals on for the trip, I was absolutely fine but if you intend to walk as far as you can along the coast, I do recommend more appropriate footwear as it is a little rocky at points! Take your time here and take in the view, it’s the most exotic seascape in Cornwall I have ever seen.
I was absolutely thrilled with our visit to Kynance Cove and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area. Pack some snacks, your trainers and head out for the afternoon.
