This hardy little pony is one of a small herd of Exmoor ponies who graze the Lizard National Nature Reserve, maintaining the habitats of the heath and coastal areas for wildlife, birds and wild flowers.

You can help to look after Cornwall's nature by sponsoring a pony.

There are three levels of sponsorship: Bronze (£20), Silver (£50) and Gold (£500). All sponsors will receive a certificate, and information about the herd. Silver and Gold sponsors also get guided visits and an opportunity to meet some ponies. Support the pony herd by making a donation on line at www.easydonate.org/NENG002

Kennack Sands Beach

Kennack Sands, on the Lizard peninsula, has two beaches. Kennack West, the closest to the road allows dogs during the winter and Kennack East is dog friendly all year round. During the summer months the way to reach Kennack East is by this lovely path which passes behind the first beach. Lined with wild flowers, Blackthorn and providing lovely views it is an easy and enjoyable route.

At high tide the beach disappears under the waves but you can still take the coast path to walk onto the headland between west and east beach, where you can admire the spectacular scenery.
