Kynance Cove beach is rightfully the most photographed beach in Cornwall: the contrast between the cove’s white sand beach and the dark red and green serpentine rock produces a breathtaking sight. The beach has been popular since the Victorian times, with many distinguished visitors including poet Alfred Lord Tennyson.
It is best to get there during low tide, as there are some areas and paths that disappear as soon as the tide rises.
WHERE TO STAY: there is a nice campsite on premises,Henry’s, open all year round.
WHERE TO EAT: the lovely Kynance Cove Cafè serves fresh food and the best scones in the area! Alternatively, you can follow the coast path to Cadgwith Cove, a working fishing village three miles away, where you can snap up local lobster, crab and fish for your barbecue.
WHAT TO KNOW: Kynance Cove Beach is dog friendly, except in high season, from Easter to September 30th.
