The Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall is the most southerly point of the UK mainland.

An area of the peninsula covering 16.62 square kilometres (6.42 sq mi) is designated a national nature reserve because of its coastal grasslands and heaths, and The Lizard also contains three Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).

The peninsula does not have many sweeping sandy beaches but shows off some of the most beautiful coves in Cornwall like Cadgwith and Mullion, then along with the larger harbour of Porthleven.
