Tunnel Beach Track - 1hr Return Walk

Point Of Interest

4.5 from 15 users


Tunnel Beach Walk provides spectacular coastal views including a natural archway / land bridge alongside a buttress like headland covered in coastal turf. The walk includes access through a historic 1870's tunnel to a small but beautiful beach nestled amongst towering cliffs. 2 km return via same track. The beach area is tidal and prone to rogue waves. There are caves to explore but make sure to check the tide timetable to avoid getting trapped. Torches are recommended in caves. Tunnel Beach is to the south of Dunedin. Start at the car park on Tunnel Beach Road, signposted off Blackhead Road. The car park is small and parking is limited. Only park in the designated spaces. There is no point to turn on the road. If you have a large campervan, it can be a challenge. Don't leave valuables in your car there have been break-ins. No dogs.

Beautiful view The way is sooo exhausting haha Very steep



Nice coastal cliffs, worth a stop.



OK for one night, really close to tunnel Beach, but it doesn't have nice views. Horrible and disgusting toilets.
