Staying safe at Kynance

Kynance Cove cafe at Lizard Peninsula, Cornwall, 1375947

Its great to enjoy the coast. Autumn is still quite busy especially when the suns out. We are asking you to take care of yourselves and others by following these guidelines.

  • Choose your time to visit. It is best to visit at low tide as the beach can fill up very quickly. Lizard Point Tide Times | 
  • There are limited spaces in September. We want everyone to have an enjoyable visit and suggest having an alternative in mind should you not be able to park.
  • There are non-National Trust car parks in the area which are a 40-minute walk to the Cove. Ideas of other beaches can be found on the Visit Cornwall website. You can find ideas of alternatives to a day at the beach here and which can be less busy over this period.
  • If the car park is full please respect the local area and turn around. We ask that you do not queue or park on approach roads or nearby verges as this could block emergency access.
  • Keep safe and respect the tides and strong currents
  • Please take your rubbish home to recycle responsibly with you after your visit 
  • Help us keep Kynance a safe, healthy and enjoyable place for you and your dog, other visitors, wildlife and livestock. Please keep your dog in sight and under control - Council enforced dog ban is from1st July to the 31st August.,10AM-6PM.​
