Kynance Cove is one of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall.
It’s carved out of the coast of the Lizard Peninsula, surrounded by steep cliffs.
The white sands only make an appearance for a few hours at a time – once the tide starts to rise, they’re completely hidden. Plan your visit around the tide – for at least an hour either side of high tide, the beach is covered.
Leave the car at the top of the cliffs and take the steeper of the two paths down.
The views as you scramble down towards the beach are spectacular, especially if the sun comes out and turns the waters turquoise.
Once the waters have covered the sand, retreat to the little café for lunch (and maybe an ice-cream too…).
