Cornish favourites: Kynance Cove

Kynance beach is probably one of the most beautiful in Cornwall set in an area of outstanding natural beauty AONB. In fact I have seen it voted as being one of the most beautiful in the world. It is certainly one of the most remote as it is practically at the end of the Lizard peninsula (the Lizard is Britain’s most southerly mainland point) and it is not a beach that you can drive up to.

The beach in April – nicely uncrowded

It has one of the most spectacular views from the cliff tops, and the colour of the sea is reminiscent of the cloudy aquamarine waters of New Zealand. It is also one of the busiest coves on a sunny school holiday, so bear that in mind if visiting.

The beach in August – hardly room to breathe as the tide comes in.

    It’s a stunner, Jude. Love the header on the original post, too. Bet you can’t wait to get out and about again. 🙂 🙂 Tired this morning after a delayed flight, but yesterday was a great day (including wading a stream or two 🙂 ).

      Lovely here this morning so we are going out for lunch. Still cool and windy though so I shall leave the beaches for a bit longer. How’s the house? In one piece? No burst pipes?

      1. restlessjo says:

        The house is fine. 🙂 🙂 Job no. 1 at 2 this morning was to remove the smoke alarm battery. Have apologised to one neighbour but haven’t seen the other yet. Apparently the snow provided distraction. 🙂 Just had cheese and digestives for lunch. Cooking later. Enjoy yours!

          Didn’t they get the key to go in and switch it off? What a pain. Hope you brought back some bottles of sherry to placate the neighbours 😀

        2. restlessjo says:

          Key didn’t arrive till yesterday. No post because of the snow 😦

          Oh, goodness!

          One of the local villages was completely cut off and you couldn’t get up the bank in the other. Don’t think I missed anything xx

          When you are an ex-pat you’ll be dreaming about snow 😀

    Stunning colours. I love that milky blue-turquoise.

  3. Such a beautiful area. I hope we get to visit again one day.

      Yes, this is a gorgeous spot, but soo busy in the summer as you can see. I will try to go back in spring between school holidays. Fingers crossed we get some decent weather.

    I was around for the original of this, and it was great to see all those lovely colours again, on such a dull day here.
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    What a magnificent spot Jude – so glad I took the moment to visit your original which shares so much more! The photos remind me of New Zealand as well – and OH that water color! Wonderful post.

    1. Heyjude says:

      There is a lot about Cornwall which reminds me of New Zealand, the aquamarine water, the plants and the people.

  7. Joanne Sisco says:

    The ruggedness of the coastline calls to me. So very beautiful!

    1. Heyjude says:

      Rugged indeed and also collapsing at an alarming rate!

      1. Joanne Sisco says:

        Are they calling it natural erosion or some other factor?

        1. Heyjude says:

          Erosion, definitely, natural? Well since there is no such thing as ‘climate change’
