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. Using our custom trip planner, Torquay attractions like Bells Beach can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Was quite excited to see this amazing surf beach but when we got here, it was smooth as silk and just another rather average beach. I was a little disappointed so don’t expect too much.

  • Excellent brach to see surfing even when the annual competition isn't on. Good viewing places from the cliff tops and elsewhere. Will have to return to see the comp sometime.
