Come prepared, good walking shoes, some water and a hat. Remember to check you are visiting at the lower tide levels.

This is no secret beach with a hidden tunnel - there are so many tourists that the car park might be full and you might have to queue for the tunnel. And the beach is more of a pule of rocks against the cliff. The...More

The view is spectacular. The hike up is even more taxing than anticipated. We were perspiring even on the walk down! The tunnel brings you down to the beach. It looks straight out of a Harry Potter movie. It's definitely worth a stopover given it's...More

The walk offers great views, once you arrive to the tunnel and go down to the beach it is another experience. We have a small child and took our “baby backpack carrier” so we could do it easier. Once at the beach, it is very...More

Great panorama - totally worth the tramp there. Hike takes ~1 hour return plus whatever time you need for pictures. Parking area on the smaller side and might be hard to get a spot especially if there are lots of camper vans. Track to the...More

If you like panoramic views, like I do, then this track to Tunnel Beach is unlikely to disappoint. Yes, it's a steep and arduous climb both there and back (but especially up, upon returning), but the views are so rewarding it makes it all worthwhile.
