The Lizard is blessed with some very dark nights which means the stars can shine particularly brightly over us. Lizard Point is one of the best places in the UK to visit at night to see some of the most spectacular starry skies, just don't forget to go on a clear night!
Caves aren't that easy to come across, however if you visit Kynance Cove at low tide you can explore inside the caves in the middle of the beach and image how pirates and smugglers may have hidden in them years ago.
It's the best time of year to go for a dip in the sea and mess around in the water. Poldhu is the perfect place to do this with the RNLI lifeguards on the beach all summer making sure swimming there is safe.
Pop along to the wildlife watchpoint at Lizard Point and learn how to spot birds with our team of volunteers who are on hand to assist you. You may even be lucky enough to see the iconic Cornish Chough.
