Tunnels Beach (Devon)

  • Information

    Tunnels beach are formed by two segregated Victorian bathing pools – there were no accessible beaches close to the town until a series of tunnels was dug in the 1820’s – these led to two, segregated by sex, bathing pools. These were tidal pools that for many were the first chance to learn to swim. These are no longer maintained for use and one has fallen into complete disrepair.

    Water samples are taken at regular intervals during the bathing season and at the end of the season the water quality is classified as:
    • Excellent: the highest classification meaning the water is cleanest
    • Good: generally good water quality
    • Sufficient: meets minimum standards
    • Poor: You are advised not to swim. The beach will stay open and an action plan should be in place to improve the water quality.
