Lizard’s Most Popular Walk

Forever Cornwall NT Kynance

A walk from here… ↑ Kynance Cove … to here… ↓ Lizard Point…

This mostly coastal path walk takes about two hours, including time to stop for a pasty!

Forever Cornwall NT Lizard Lighthouse

It’s best to start at Kynance Cove car park (National Trust members park for free), and then walk south towards Lizard Point. There is a gap in the hedge that leads straight onto the coast path and you just keep going..!

Look out for the amazing views (often behind you) as you walk, the various aspects of Kynance Cove are incredible and not to be missed. Also look out for the choughs, these red beaked and footed birds are rare, but came back to breed on the Lizard in 2001, you will probably here them before you see them as they make a squeaky, chirpy noise.

When you reach Lizard Point, you head up the footpath to the lighthouse and then beyond on the foot path to lizard village. At the corner of the village green you will see a little footpath across the downs, this is a short cut back to Kynance car park.

This is a lovely unspoilt area of Cornwall and perfect for a walking holiday. Our self catering accommodation at Kestle Barton makes an ideal base.
