Walk - Kynance Cove
2.9 miles (4.7 km)
Lizard Green - TR12 7NH Lizard Green
Easy - Some rough paths and some steep ascent, with a little scrambling over rocks on the beach.
A gentle stroll to one of Britain’s most spectacular coves, whose red and green serpentine rocks are as beautifully carved and polished by the sea as the Victorian stoneware once produced by the Poltesco factory just around the coast. The walk follows the path through the rare Cornish heath above the cove to Tor Balk, where there are spectacular views down over Kynance's island trio: Asparagus Island (where wild asparagus grows), Gull Rock and the pointed mitre of The Bishop. Best visited on a falling tide - and take care not to get cut off if you visit Asparagus Island.
