However you choose to spend your holiday, the Lizard Peninsula has something for everyone. Experience the fresh clean air, peace and quiet, clear bright light and the dark starry skies at night.
The beaches here are some of the finest in the county with marbled pebbles, white sand, good surf and crystal clear waters. Enjoy sheltered fishing villages, a stroll around the Helford River or book a boat trip and see the birdlife living along the oak wooded creeks. There is always an opportunity for quiet discovery.
The seasons add more interest from the rush of spring flowers to balmy summer days through to the colourful landscapes of autumn and arrival of dramatic winter storms. Walk the coastal path and be amazed at the variety of wild flowers that grow here from Pink Thrift to Cornish Heath, Primroses and Yellow Gorse as well as orchids.
For art lovers, search out the local artisans of painters, potters, wood-turners and sculptors at work in their studios.
