Bells Beach, Torquay
(4.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Home to the world’s longest-running surfing competition, Bells Beach is widely recognized as one of the best surfing beaches in Victoria. At this beach you can ride waves all day, or head to the rocky cliffs surrounding the coastline, from which you can watch some of the world’s best surfers perfecting their skills. Named after the family that lived in the area in the 1840s, the beach is popular with sightseers, who walk along the cliffs looking for the best vantage points, or picnic on the sand as the sun goes down. Keep in mind that due to its exposed reef and rough waves, the beach is most suited to experienced surfers. Make Bells Beach a part of your Torquay vacation plans using our Torquay trip itinerary builder.

  • The best thing about Bells Beach is its untouched beauty. Unlike other popular tourist destinations this beach has not been ruined to make a profit. Expect nothing else except rugged Australian cliffs...  more »
  • Bells Beach is the surf capital of Australia. When the surf is pumping its amazing to watch the local surfers carve up the waves. 
  • 贝尔斯海滩位于大洋路上的托尔基小镇上,其实这里是冲浪者爱好者的天堂,小镇上有很多冲浪店。不过我们并不会冲浪,会到这里来完全是为了要跳伞,可惜当天风特别大,跳伞公司取消了所有跳伞,于是我们就从跳伞点开车到贝尔斯海滩逛了逛,景色还挺美的。
