Kynance Cove…

You might remember last year when I said we had found our beach.  Well I am going to say it again.  We have found our beach!  

Kynance Cove is stuff of childhood dreams.  Rocky, wild and raw.  The trek down from the beach gives glimpse of the clear turquoise seas crashing below.  Scrambling over rocks at low tide, to finally land on white sands and soaring cliffs covered in barnacles.
At very low tide the sea allows you to skip round to the other bays, search for buried treasure in the caves.  We all became giddy in the delight of placing the first footstep on washed new sand.  Jumping in and out of waves, rushing to crash us against the jagged rocks.
Kynance Cove will always be in my heart.. the pina colada smell of the bright yellow gorse, the colour of the ocean. I love that word


lilac sea thrift billowing in the breeze. Sea gulls calling.  The smell of salt still lingers with me…

  • Kynace Cove is one of our favourite beaches in Cornwall. We go there as often as we can. It’s a bit of a tek from West Cornwall, but soooo worth it. I love it in winter. It is an exhilarating place.
