1. Kynance Cove
One of Cornwall’s most Instagrammed locations, Kynance Cove on the Lizard Peninsula feels almost magical. Pyramids of rare serpentine rock (ask a geography teacher) rise from the water like marbled red and green ancient beasts. A stunning sight, set off by the pale sand and turquoise sea. Inevitably, it gets packed in summer (cheers, social media), so get there early, or wait until September. Whenever you visit, ordering a crab sandwich or a cream tea (jam first, FYI) at the café is highly recommended.
