Welcome to Lizard Point
Five miles south from Mullion, the British mainland reaches its southernmost tip at Lizard Point, historically one of Britain’s deadliest headlands. Hundreds of ships have come to grief around the point itself or the many submerged reefs over the centuries, from Spanish treasure galleons to naval frigates. It’s a mecca for scuba divers, as well as coastal walkers who flock to the clifftops to bask in the majestic coastal scenery.
With its conglomeration of fudge-sellers and souvenir shops, Lizard village makes a pretty disappointing gateway, so most people just park in the village and take the mile-long stroll down to the point itself.
