Don’t miss the detour to Britain’s most southerly headland. Lizard Point is more geographically significant and wildly impressive than Land’s End, but lacks crowds and touristy development. The main facility is a homely pasty shop often judged the world’s best.
The peninsula offers fine coast walks between tiny coves and fishing villages. The most memorable spots include Landewednack, Cadgwith, Mullion and Kynance. Expect jagged rocks, frothy waves, rare plants and birds… and tiny harbours with granite walls like fortresses against the gales.
