Great views across the bay, interesting history of the tunnels . You can explore the tunnels as well the beaches/ coves. Lots of information on tide times

I think it as around £2 each to walk through the tunnels onto the beaches. All good, except there was a wedding on the Gentlemen’s beach so we could only visit the other one. Disappointing especially if you’re paying the same price for half the...More

If you are a beach fan, then it is good to go there for the day. You pay once and can come and go as you please. The history is interesting as is imagining what it was like to back in the day.

Attended for a wedding, the venue was absolutely stunning and could not fault it. Location is something else. The barman needs a certain mention, he really got into the party spirit removing his shirt and dancing on the bar!!!

Sorry we never had a dog with us so didn’t pay attention as to whether or not they’re allowed. I doubt it though.
