Kynance Cove is not quite a Penzance beach, but it’s a beautiful little cove that’s worth visiting if you head towards the lizard during your Penzance beach holiday.
Owned by the National Trust, Kynance Cove was once described by the BBC as ‘one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the South West’ and the little cafe which serves it dates back to 1929.The combination of glistening turquoise waters and white sand make the cove a beautiful sight, and its nearby caves and islands on the horizon give this cove the feeling of belonging to a far away land.
Kynance Cove has long been THE place to enjoy a Lizard Peninsula beach holiday, as its whitewashed sands and gleaming waters first became popular in the Victorian era. The cove has enough hidden caves and dramatic views to rival an Enid Blyton novel, and has found itself the muse of many an artist.
This Lizard beach is so popular that the National Trust created a new road to the large car park nearby, as the beach was once difficult to reach. The car park is just 10 minutes walk from Kynance Cove, and there is a beach cafe and a toilet at the beach too.
