Regularly visit the beach,very clean and unspoilt by out of control dogs running around (they're not allowed on the beach),a reasonable price for entry and a lot of Victorian history to take in,recommend the natural pool but beware one end is deeper than you think.

We get the season ticket as we live locally and love coming here from Easter to October. It is a good beach to take children to as easy to view them playing or swimming, even if life guard not on duty out of season. Plenty of rockpools to explore and interesting to read the displays about what it was like... More

Disappointed to find the gates locked for our annual family and friends outing in Ilfracombe. We were a party of around 30 children and adults, and we're not the only disappointed souls at the gate, surprised to find them locked. We went down the harbour instead. Shame.

My husband and I love the tunnels. So unusual and takes you back to the Victorian era where the UKs beaches and resorts were so popular. We wish this popularity would return as treasures such as these tunnels are rare today.

Such a shame as I have always wanted bro visit the tunnels beach but should have read the reviews first. It was a lovely October day but as soon as you exited the tunnel and onto the gravel it was so dark and eerie, and the natural pool was really scummy. We had to laugh as we had just paid... More

Tunnel Beaches is a little piece of tropical paradise in the South West. I had always dreamt of getting married by the sea and I was lucky to find this venue. We were very lucky with the weather and managed to have the ceremony and dinner outside (they do have a plan b in case it rains). All our guests... More
