Kynance Cove Beach (Cornwall)

  • Information

    Kynance Cove on dramatic and historic stretch of Cornish coast – white-sand, cliffs, turquoise water and multi-coloured islands. Calm seas means good swimming conditions but there can be rip tides and strong currents.

    Excellent location for walking and spending the day on the beach. At low tide there is sand, caves and rock pools. Often missed as visitors go straight for The Lizard but if you want a location rather than amusements then this cove is the place for you.

    Lizard Wireless Station, site of ground-breaking radio experiments. Dramatic cliff-top walks, rare wildflowers and unique geology.

    NT car parks with toilets at Kynance and Lizard Point, cafe and shop, no lifeguards.

    “Kynans” means gorge in the Cornish language.

    Kynance Cove Beach has dog restrictions. Kynance Cove does not allow dogs between Easter and September.
