A really cool spot, well worth it.
Nice exit at Tunnel Beach. Good spot for pictures!! The descent is rather easy but the reclimb is far more difficult for the novice.
Well maintained track and a little gem in Dunedin. Got there at low tide and spent a good while exploring. Would be cool to see why the tunnel was put there.
Only 30 minutes return, and we have seen a great view of the cliffs and ocean.
A really short walk and a great way to see a bit of Otago Peninsula's beauty.
This is one of my favourite walks. It is fast to the bottom and a slow return. The track is in great condition and we took an off road pram (with downhill breaking) down to the top of the tunnel stairs (this is a NO GO with a normal street pram). The views are amazing and enhanced on a sunny day. The stairs down the tunnel can be slippery but it is worth the walk. The edges (fenced) off should be respected as the geology is delicate. The track has no shade so wear sunscreen. It is a long hard walk back to the car but if I can do it pushing a pram you can walk it. Expect to spend longer at the bottom that you intend.
Beautiful beach with stunning cliffs, although a tough walk back up the track and might be difficult if you were older with poor knees.
Steep walk down (and back up!) but worth the views. Beautiful beach and fun tunnel to walk through. Also, FREE!
Is worth it if you are around the area. Stunning rocks in the sea, cliffs and wavy sea.

Short walk, there is a tunnel through the rock to go down the beach. Beautiful cliffs and waves.
Great walkway, beautiful coastline and also seals. Great spot for taking pictures.
A sometimes steep track to a beach, the end goes through a small tunnel. Stunning views over a spectacular, rocky coastline. The walk takes one hour return. Not many people and it is a free attraction you must visit! One of the absolute highlights!
A nice and short walk with few tourists. The view is beautiful and the tunnel access is fun. A good surprise close to Dunedin.
Nice walk, not too long, great views, really beautiful!
Spectacular walk and location. Check for high tide, though. Well worth the detour.
You can see penguins, seals, and the beautiful coast.
We missed the turn because it was not signposted, but when we did get there it is easy to get to and amazing to look at. Best when the beach is available.
Parking and toilets!!
Steep one hour walk to "the tunnel" at first the track seems not that special (besides a nice view on the beach), when you pass the tunnel you will arrive in a lovely secluded bay. Enjoy.
Nice steep walk to secluded beach. Bring lunch and have a nice day at the beach with only yourselves and no other visitors!
Lovely beach accessed through a tunnel in the rock.
Short but surprising.
Track is a bit hidden (Tunnel Road). Very steep descent to the beach. Awesome scenery when you reach the tunnel entrance. Bring your swimsuit.
Great tip from nice waiter of Plato restaurant (Dunedin), won't tell a lot otherwise I spoil the surprise, just go, 1 hour walk return.
Beautiful beach! Also quiet and not very touristy which makes the experience only better!

VERY STEEP track, 20 min downhill, 30 min back up. But when you are on the beach it's breathtaking.
Nice and windy.
Walk through tunnel to see seals on a small beach (doable with kids!!)
