View of Kynance cove

Important notice -

Kynance gets VERY busy on hot weekend days and during the peak summer months, the car park gets full early and quickly. There is no alternative parking within 1 mile of Kynance so when we are full you may want to seek an alternative beach to play on.

A tidal beach for the adventurous, famous for its white sand, turquoise sea and rock stacks. Very busy in the summer holidays.
