Unfortunately there is no free parking for the tunnel beaches, so once we arrived we had to go on a hunt for a cash machine, change the cash up just to get a ticket for the car parking which was frustrating.

Visited here for a wedding was really stunning for this purpose. Everything was lovely from start to finish and staff were very helpful. The food was very nice being a BBQ with lots of choice meats fish and vegetarian options with plenty of Salads.

So lovely to go back in time. The tunnels open out into a fantastic little beach and there are a few quirky signposts en-route.

A great manmade landmark with a stunning view out over the "Ladies Beach". We felt the admission price was a little OTT, especially as access is limited to one area only (the "Gentlemans Beach" is used as an exclusive wedding venue).

We visited the Tunnels Beaches several times on our holiday as it was great fun for the kids rock pooling and playing in the sea. Lovely photo's and info about the Victorian pool and good facilities too with shop/cafe/small play area. Well worth a visit.

Small entrance fee £2.50 per adult, but a breathtaking place. Stony cove/beach area. Very clean. Good toilets, shop selling gifts, teas and ice creams. Reasonable prices. Life guard on duty. Lots of history written on the entrance down to the beach for those interested in how it all began.

If you like rock pools and small pebbly rocks, it's good. Half closed for a wedding when we visited. Helpful life guard but beware attack sea gulls!
