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.

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
