I have visited Kynance Cove half a dozen times to date, it is one of my favourite photo locations in Cornwall.

There is plenty of parking at the top of the cliffs, which is free to National Trust members.  Form the car park there are two routes down to the beach. 

You can leave the North (lower) side of the car park, and follow the path down a small valley to the beach.  This route gives a view into the bay, showing the path winding in and out of site as an ideal lead in line.

Alternatively, you can leave the South (top end) of the car park, and then walk round onto the cliff tops.  There are a few points on the cliffs when you are able to walk out onto headlands which give views up and down the coast.

Whichever route is taken, when you get down to it, the beach can be spectacular.  At high time in stormy weather, there are all the rocks that waves will crash on.  At low time there is a lot of (hopefully) fresh sand, and it is possible to walk out round the headlands and get good views along the coast into Mounts Bay. The headland, which can be accessed by some steps opposite the cafe, also gives good views all round.
