Kynance Cove

The Lizard, TR12

One of our favourite locations in Cornwall. Kynance Cove is very picturesque and is important historically and geologically. To experience Kynance at its best, it is suggested that you arrive at the car park about 3 hours before low tide. There is then a half mile or so descent down to the beach with several excellent photo opportunities along the way. The beach at Kynance Cove really unfolds at low tide when it is possible to explore the caves (The Parlour and The Drawing Room) and the bases of the serpentine rock stacks such as The Bishop, Gull Rock and Asparagus Island.
