About Kynance Cove
The scenery surrounding Kynance Cove is as dramatic as it is beautiful with cliffs of over 200ft in height rising on either side and a swirling ocean, covering the golden sand on the beach below. To watch the sun set and rise across the ocean from high above Kynance, is truly morning glory and mid-night sun, it renders a memorable moment that will live with you forever.
Once the sea retreats, the beach can be used for the period of low tide. The rocks that outline the bay are spectacular in both formation and colour. They are streaked with white, yellow, red and black and, parts of the formation is of a brilliant greyish-green. There is a wildness about this place and the cove is littered with ancient rocks that have been washed into the strangest shapes by the ceaseless pounding of gale lashed seas. On the headland above the cove, the ground is covered with a rich variety of wild flowers, they grow in wild profusion all along these cliffs and make it a mecca for naturalists from all over. The wonderful flora and fauna to be found along here has been well documented for over two centuries. Kynance Cove can be found between the Lizard and Predannack Head, it is a place of great beauty and unique atmosphere, that will call you back again and again.
