Went first to Kynance Cove, absolutely stunning, be warned there is a steep descent/ascent to get down but well worth it. We then went to Lizard Point, again a fairly steep descent/ascent. Apparently you can see all kinds in the water and flying by but...More

We parked in the 'free' parking - donations are welcome - and walked down through Pistol meadow to the Point. The old lifeboat station looked sadly forlorn (it would make a good 'doer upperer' quipped my hubby) and although it was quite a hazy day,...More

One of the most beautiful view that I've never seen. At low tide you could appreciate a big place on a white sand.

Came here with my wife as we are on holiday in the area. What a fabulous place. Superbly run by the national trust. Great place to visit (far far better than the nearby Lands End). Views to die for - we could have watched the...More

We visited the Lizard in late January on a day when only a couple of other hardy souls ventured out to the coast. It was well worth the effort to see the winter sun playing on the water around the rocks. Easy access for those...More

Probably from the beach at the Lizard, next to the old lifeboat station, there is a good path from the NT car park and it's shorter than the one to Kynance
