Bells Beach, Torquay

(4.5/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • People are less helpful. From Turkey in the city, about a 15 minute parking and facilities are so laid back. Hill prospect in the Middle, and the view from there is the best.
