We had no idea what to expect but really enjoyed our time in the tunnels. There are changing rooms, toilets, small cafe and small shop. The beach is rocky but there are places to lie and relax. It looks a wonderful wedding venue. Staff lovely.

For the price this is well worth a visit, you can spend as much or little time as you want. It’s a good beach day for the family with good facilities. It has an interesting history.

Stopped for an hour and a half as the weather wasn’t brilliant interesting place with real history. Charge of £2.50 worth every penny

Wow! What an amazing venue and occasion. Not just saying this but the venue, food, in fact the whole day was fantastic. The tunnels themselves are fun and worth a visit. Thank-you so much!

Super relaxing and very interesting. A beach behind a set of short dark wet tunnels. Loads of history and a rock pool and low tide. Hire a deck chair and relax in the sun. Mind the sea mist though. £2.50 all day entrance fee. Closes...More

It’s worth a visit. We only stayed about an hour. Make sure you go when the tides out as you can then see the pool. Wear good shoes too.

Found it by accident. What a lovely way to waste a couple hours or a day if you fancy a family day on the beach. The views are spectacular and the beach is secluded and beautiful. What a feat of engineering.

I'm glad I visited and did enjoy the experience however; very little to see. Some nice history to read, small gift shop Admission was reasonable at £2.50 (adult)

Not an awful lot to see but cheap enough entry to the tunnels. The gentleman’s beach was closed for a wedding on the day we visited but still got charged full price. I’d say it was worth the visit and small entrance fee if you’re...More

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
