It may seem odd to pay to visit a beach but The Tunnels offer more than the average beach. The are several sandy beaches and, at the right stage of the tide, rock pools. The geology is fascinating. The admission fee covers the whole day...More

These tunnels through the cliffs were hand carved during Victorian times and give access to tidal bathing pools which are unigue. There are lavatories, a play area, shop and café available.

Don't bother going. The beach is rocky, no sand, not suitable for children. I don't know why anyone would charge money to visit, it's quite expensive. Go to Woolacombe instead which has good views, lovely golden sand and it's free.

Visited tunnels beaches for the first time, paid our £2.50 each to get in to find only half was open. The beach looks like a building site and it's impossible to get near the sea for a paddle

Great entrance to a couple of lovely beaches, also some history to go with it. A very interesting place history and natural beauty. Depending on the weather you could spend a couple of hours here or the whole day. Good facilities, accessibility and service.

Why not try the Dilkhusa Grand hotel, 2 minutes walk from the Tunnels Beaches. There was a wedding taking place on the Gentleman's Beach (left hand beach) while we were there last week. We caught a glimpse of the guests... More
