Lizard Peninsula to Kynance Cove Walk
A magical gem of a walk along the Cornish Coast with views to make your jaw drop!

A beautiful 4.5 mile Cornish coastal walk that begins and ends at the picturesque village of The Lizard Peninsula, taking you all the way along the ‘Serpentine Rock’ coastal path, to the gem that is Kynance Cove.

An easy route to follow as it is signposted well with plenty of places to explore along the way such as the beach at Kynance Cove, towering rock stacks and excellent caves which are accessible at low tide. Taking a camera is highly recommended as the views are stunning, and there is the possibility of spotting seals and dolphins along the way too.

Plenty of toilet stops as well as a couple of lovely cafes (one being eco-friendly) serving good Cornish Pasties, cakes & ice-cream! A couple of steep climbs but enough benches along the way to catch your breath on.

Verdict of the walk: I’m lucky enough to live in Cornwall, but the views along this walk still managed to take my breath away.
