The Lizard Peninsula is a large area of downland fringed by sea cliffs, the peninsula ends at Lizard Point, the most southerly point in Britain. Rare plants grow on its spacious heathland and coastal paths, visitors are asked not to pick the wild flowers and plants. To the north of Lizard Point is the Helford River with a softer landscape of wooded creeks and quiet villages which leads on to the great natural harbour of Falmouth. At the western gateway to the Lizard is the market town of Helston, which is famous for its Flora Day Festival.
Kynance Cove is one of the world’s most spectacular beaches and since Victorian times it has been one of the most painted and photographed. With its turquoise sea, white sand, the caves, rocks and spectacular views it is easy to see why it is popular. The walk down to the beach is quiet steep and the return is quite strenuous, but there is a National Trust car park where you can enjoy the viewpoint if you can’t get down to the beach easily.
Lizard Point is the most southerly point in Britain and is situated 800m south of Lizard village and this is where there was the first sighting of the Spanish Armada in 1588, today from the Wildlife Watchpoint you can see seals, basking sharks and the iconic Cornish chough which breed close by. The Lizard lighthouse is the oldest in mainland Cornwall, the present lighthouse dates from 1751, but there was a light here from 1619.
