Polpeor Cove

This tiny cove next to the Lizard Point was home to the Lizard's first Lifeboat station.

Lizard instead of Land's End any day

Being the southernmost point of mainland Britain, Lizard has more claim than Land's end and, in my opinion, a lot more charm.
A lovely village with some great little cafes, chip shops, pubs and shops it's an easy stroll down to the lighthouse and the cove. If you're not the strolling type you can park in the National Trust car park right next to the lighthouse.
The old lifeboat station has a decrepit magnificence and the scenery is breath taking, I just wish I'd taken some binoculars so that I could get a better look at the seals in the bay.

Fantastic place to visit, we walked down from Lizard village itself a leisurely walk. Lizard has the most wonderful cafe for cream teas on the way back. Well worth the visit.

At the Lizard it is the most southerly cafe, the views are outstanding and so is the crab salad and cream teas!
Park in the National Trust car park and it is a short walk.
Visit the Lighthouse at the same time.
