Kynance Cove will always hold a special place in my heart.
We discovered this glorious wild beach 8 years ago on our first trip to Cornwall as a couple. Two years ago on a particularly windswept day (the second from last day of our holiday, I believe), my now Husband asked me to marry him.
We have visited every year, a pilgrimage if you like. We have explored the coastal path on many a grey day and sat on top of the cliffs with the sea completely obscured by deep fog. In the driving rain we have enjoyed sandwiches and cream teas inside the weatherboard cafe.
On a sunny day there is simply nowhere better, so we gathered our beach supplies and ambled down the long winding path towards the sea. As you clamber across the rocks and dodge the waves, the full beauty of this beach reveals itself.
Here you will find the most wild and wonderful surroundings. Towering and craggy cliffs above, white golden sand beneath your feet and a vast view out to the blue, blue sea. Sheltered from the wind in one of the many secluded coves, and with an ice cream in hand, this is my favourite place on earth.
