Kynance Cove

Of all the places I visited on my holiday in Cornwall, this is the place I liked the best of all. I'll never forget that beautiful sunny day and the walk from the car park down to the beach, the tide was just going out but parts of the beach were still covered and the sea was lapping at my feet as I tried to walk around the huge multi coloured rocks scattered here and there. The sea was a green-blue colour and crashing up against the rocks in a spectacular style, it was fascinating to watch and I could have stayed there all day. The cove is scattered with rocks that the sea has worn into wild shapes such as the tall Steeple Rock and the Bishop's Rock that looks something like a mitred head. There are caves that you can walk right through and emerge on the other side. In the weird Devil's Letterbox and Bellows in the side of Asparagus Island the incoming tide is sucked through a narrow hole with a massive roar, then spewed out in a shower of spray. Asparagus Island is named for the wild Asparagus that once grew on it's slopes.
