The outstanding natural beauty of the Lizard Peninsula combined with its great weather and charming fishing villages make the area popular with holidaying couples, families, and tourists who enjoy spending time outdoors.

Things to do

-Beaches: Being on a peninsula, there are plenty of beaches to choose from. Kynance Cove Beach on the Lizard Heritage Coast is perhaps the most famous. Contrasting white sand, dark rocks, and blue seas meet here to create a photographer’s dream. Closer to the village of Mullion, Polurrian Cove Beach is another gem that faces the sheltered south west. Gunwalloe Church Beach near riverside town Helston is also a lovely place to visit and is suitable for swimming.

-Watersports: Visitors staying in a Lizard Peninsula holiday cottage have the opportunity to partake in any number of exhilarating water sports. Several beaches on the peninsula are well suited for surfing as well as windsurfing. Sailing and boating are also favourite activities in the region. Whether sailing for the sake of sightseeing or on a fishing trip, visitors have plenty of options to choose from.

-Outdoor activities: In addition to its wealth of lovely beaches, The Lizard is also full of wonderful walking trails. The Lizard Point walk along the South West Coast Path is very rewarding, taking walkers to the southernmost point of Britain. In addition to the amazing views, visitors may also find some friendly seals below in the water in addition to several varieties of seabirds.

-Family attractions: Flambards Theme Park located on the outskirts of Helston is a great place to take children, as it has everything from museums to plenty of rides and activities to enjoy. The Cornish Seal Sanctuary, also near Helston, is home to several species of seals, sea lions, otters, and penguins, and is open daily to visitors.

The place was so quiet you would have thought you were here out is season - but that was just what we wanted. The bungalow is clean and tidy, and had everything we needed. There were even bodyboards for the boys to use at the beach - which we did ! Overall a lovely quiet time - wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

It was perfect, clean and everything you could possibly need .It worked so well for me and my son and Dog as a short break. I would recommend this to friends and others . James and David thank you for letting us stay in your apartment. Best wishes and see you soon
