One of the world's most spectacular beaches, for centuries Kynance has been a magnet for adventurous tourists. Turquoise seas meet a white sandy beach interspersed with colourful serpentine rock stacks. At low tide caves and islands are yours to explore, but visitors need to be aware of the risks of being cut off by the tide. In the summer Kynance will have limited parking, arrive early to avoid disappointment. Private car parks do open seasonally around the Lizard and are about a 40 minute walk to the Cove.
Please note that Kynance Cove has no lifeguards operating.
Lizard National Trust is one of 63 projects across the country to have been awarded a share of £14.5 million by Natural England to help recover 150 species nationwide.
We are working to create 250 hectares of new species rich grassland at National Trust sites across Cornwall. The project, due to be completed by 2026, will help us rise to the twin challenges of biodiversity loss and climate change.
