Tunnel Beach is located to the south of Dunedin - New Zealand and is one of the most well-known attractions to visit in this city. The walk down to this beach is one that you will never forget; it winds through twisting pathways with expansive views of the rocky coastline.
The car park at the end of Tunnel Beach Road is the starting point of the path down to Tunnel Beach, from which you will have to climb through a few low steps to access the walkway down to the beach. You may notice that there are large fences that line along the trail, these fences provide protection for both people and the native vegetation here. The walkway is steep at some parts and will be a bit slippery.
When you reach the beach, you will feel overwhelmed by the endless sea view from the top of the high cliffs that stand high above the sea and look out over the high rock walls along this coast. The prominent color veins on the cliffs show the geological changes over thousands of years that are amazing. There is a steep tunnel that was hand-carved in the 1870s, step down through this tunnel and you will reach Tunnel Beach, the beach is hidden right at the foot of high cliffs surround. From here looking up, you will see how majestic nature is and how small you are when standing in front of it.
