Not an awful lot to see but cheap enough entry to the tunnels. The gentleman’s beach was closed for a wedding on the day we visited but still got charged full price. I’d say it was worth the visit and small entrance fee if you’re...More

Stunning place, with very informative notices everywhere. We visited just as the tide was on the way in. Definitely one to see and learn all about the ladies pool!

Lovley coves and tunnels but could not really find anything to justify a paying entry. Nice to do but probably only do the once

This is a great secluded spot to visit and go rockpooling with the kids (although we found no crabs today!) We could not visit the ladies beach as a wedding was on but the gentleman’s beach is great as the tide is going out, and...More

Wish we’d visited in summer and may have been able to take a dip! But in the Easter holidays it wasn’t too crowded and the rock pools and stone skimming kept us well occupied. A beautiful and fascinating place
