The Lizard Peninsula is one of Cornwall’s best-kept secrets. This unspoilt area awaits exploration, with famous beauty spots like Kynance Cove within easy striking distance. One can keep things simple, and embrace the natural wonder of Polurrian Cove, just a ten-minute walk away, ideal for body-boarding, peaceful picnics and watching the local wildlife. With the coast path at the end of the garden, you don’t need four wheels to get out and experience the scenery. Just turn right (past the monument marking where Marconi sent the first transatlantic message) to Poldhu Cove, or left to Mullion Cove. Cast off from this idyllic fishing harbour and witness the coastline from the sea on a kayaking or coasteering trip with Lizard Adventure, and if you’d like to experience the thrills and spills of riding the waves, champion surfer Dan Joel runs a surf school at Poldhu Cove.
When the family are keen for entertainment and further exploration of the area, from space satellites to surfing, horse riding to tin mines, there is an abundance of exciting activities for all ages to enjoy.
