The most southerly cafe in Cornwall! Beautiful sea views, and a good spot for seeing our coastal wildlife too. The cafe displays and sells mosaic style artwork by a local artist, this artists has also created an impressive large piece on one of their external walls.

Fairly recently had a facelift under new management, and its looking great. The second most southerly cafe in Cornwall, right by the sea. Lovely locally themed wooden art work in the cafe which I believe they make themselves. Evening bookings are sometimes available when in demand, so it's worth phoning up to ask. They do a fantastic full english, and do high teas for two, which can be upgraded to come with prosecco or a cocktail!

15th century pub close to Gunwalloe beach and a few other coves. The cove down the lane opposite the pub is more known by the locals (should be quieter). They have weekly quiz nights every Tuesday starting at 8.30pm

Sightseeing
A must see of beautiful micro climate gardens, ancient cobbles of the village and harbour, and discover the castle. Important to check the tide times before you go, so that you can walk over to and from the mount. Or you can catch a boat but I'm not sure how regularly that runs, I've only walked the sea bed path.

Definitely one of our most beautiful Coves, approximately 12 minutes drive away. Kynance has been extra inundated with tourists since a particular video clip of its crystal clear seas on a sunny summers day went viral on Facebook. The car park gets full early and fast during the weekends and peak summer months. Kynance is a tidal beach so you will need to check local tide times before you go. There is a popular cafe on the beach, but if you wanted to avoid the crowds I would consider packing up a picnic (or getting fish and chips from Lizard Smugglers) and getting there in time to catch the sunset from the cliff top. Hopefully, most of its visitors will have left to go home for tea by then.

Poltesco is a peaceful valley with a wealth of history to explore. Discover the remains of medieval mills, 17th century pilchard cellars and 19th century bustling serpentine factory. As you follow the footpath down to the cove and witness how this once industrial landscape has been softened and reclaimed by nature.

Highly recommend booking in for an evening beach hack, I'd personally go for Polurrian Cove over Poldhu Beach this as its generally quieter down there, and unlike Poldhu its not a beach that can be accessed by car. Theres lots of other areas they can take you out riding - like Penrose Estate & Loe Bar, Kynance, Goonhilly, and Church Cove just to name a few of the lovely routes we have around.

A golf club with an stunning sea view. The club house is open to the public and also serves very nice food (you can't see the sea view from the club house mind). We have been there a few times and can recommend their full english breakfast, the steak, fish and chips, and carvery on Sundays! Booking is advised.
