Had a quick stop. Nice looking beach. Was raining so didn't head down to the beach. Some really nice views. Would be cool watching the surfing. So many places to view

Bells beach draws many surfers and lots of tourists to watch them and check out the activity on the water. There are a few look out points and the beach stretches for miles in both directions. There are cliffs and very pretty ones at that

We love this coastline and this is one of our favourite beaches. Well worth taking the time to explore it.

Didn't do much than watching this superb and huge beach from above, but even with sunny weather it was just splendid and you would want to spend some time walking on it. Seems to please the surfers as well!

This must be one of the best coast lines in the world , you can sit on the look out bench and watch surfers for hours . A walk along the beach is fascinating looking up at the cliffs and the exposed rooted trees ...

Cool lookout to the beach. Surf was ok, didn't see anyone surfing. It's great for tourist now with car parks and lookouts. We haven't been there for 14 years and it's so built up now around bells and touquay. Nice drive.
