Among the Dunedin walkways, Tunnel Beach, just south of Saint Clair, is strikingly different.
Here you will find sea-carved sandstone cliffs, rock arches and caves a mere 15 minutes walk from the road. Tunnel Beach is located along the Dunedin to Brighton coastal road.
Two kilometres after leaving the Dunedin area, a sign will direct you down a side road to the start of the Tunnel Beach walking trail. The one hour return walk takes you through a tunnel carved through the rock then down to the beach—it's best to do this expedition at low tide.
