Create an itinerary including Tunnel Beach Track
Discover the wild and isolated beauty of Tunnel Beach Track, carved by the sea from the surrounding sandstone cliffs. Descend the winding track, starting 150 m (490 ft) above sea level and passing through the sandstone itself, and find yourself surrounded by sheer cliffs, rock arches, and caves beaten for ages by the relentless sea. Commissioned in the 1870s by a local politician, the tunnel allows visitors to use the otherwise inaccessible beach. Walk with care and wear shoes suitable for steep and slipery terrain.

  • Lovely, quite and powerful place. Nice walk. Family with kids friendly. You probably don’t wanna wear white shoes at winter time. Quite a big slope going down hill, proper hiking shoes recommended.
