Kynance Cove (NT) 10-03-2005
Popular since Victorian times, the brilliant turquoise water and white sand, with islands, caves and unexpected views are still a powerful draw today.
Located less than 2 miles from The Lizard and once remote and difficult to get to, The National Trust built a new toll road to a large car park on the downs above the cove.
The beach's defining features are the serpentine rock formations with a disnctive pinnacle to the north of the beach.
All in all Kynance is one of the prettiest coves in Cornwall and as a result one of the most painted and photographed. It is now owned by the National Trust who have just carried out a two-year project using the latest technologies designed to harness renewable energy, improve bathing water quality and protect the environment.
