Location County Country
Kynance Cove Cornwall England

DescriptionRugged and picturesque Cornish cove, with many photo opportunities.
What to ShootShoot panoramics from the path as you descend. Then take your time to wander around the beach and amongst the rocks.
What to TakeWellington boots are always useful on the beach and it is well worth carrying a tripod down with you. A good set of graduated filters will be invaluable as well, especially if you are trying to get some long exposures.
ParkingPark at the National Trust Carpark at the end of the road on the headland.
Best TimesHigh tide is probably best avoided as the beach becomes inaccessible, so aim for around 2 hours after high tide to 2 hours before high tide.
