Spot dolphins on Cornwall's Lizard Peninsula

The Lizard, Cornwall

The most southerly point of the UK offers spectacular sea views, making it one of the best places to spot Cornwall’s playful dolphins.

Surrounded by the ocean and some of England's best beaches, the Lizard Peninsula feels like an exotic getaway during the summer. Keep an eye on the deep blue waters as dolphins can often be spotted in the area during the warmer months, with bottlenose and common dolphins making regular appearances.

Visitors to the Lizard Peninsula will be spoilt for choice on where to spend their days soaking up the sun, with the scenic Kynance Cove among the many highlights of the area. Make sure to visit the quaint town of Lizard too for picnic supplies and sun cream!
