A fascinating part of the beach is the sea, and you can take a dip in the crystal clear waters.
The sea uncovers secret coves to explore, but keep an eye out for the tide to ensure you don’t get caught! The last thing you want is to be standing on a rock, to find the sea has gone in and your only way back to shore is to swim.
Suppose you haven’t packed a picnic, do not worry! There is a brilliant eco-friendly cafe located just above the beach. The Kynance Cove Cafe sells an array of delicious food, from iconic Cornish pasties and fresh sandwiches to homemade cakes and cream teas.

There are so many rocks and coves to explore once the sea leaves the sand, so there is a chance of injury. Please keep yourself safe by staying on the main beach areas, and do not put yourself in harm’s way.
