Lizard Point is famed as being the most southerly point on the British mainland, but this is only one of the many reasons tens of thousands of visitors take in the fresh sea air here every year. Extraordinary cliffs and rock formations mixed with an abundance of wildflowers, birds and sealife mean there is never a dull moment when exploring the landscape around the most southerly point.

No matter your interest, Lizard Point can deliver an experience for everyone. Aerial displays by the rare Cornish chough, the sight of a sleeping seal ‘bottling’ in the water, the ever-changing and dramatic weather, the rich history of the lifeboats and shipwrecks or a stroll along the coast path, there’s no limit in this landscape.
Local naturalist Tony Blunden has put together this walk [http://the-lizard.org/index.php/100-walks/605-lizard-point-birds-to-see-in-every-season] describing where to see which birds around Lizard Point, throughout the year. If wildflowers or local history are of greater interest to you, a variety of different walks are described on the walks page (LINK).
