Best coastline in the world

This is such a beautiful part of the Victorian coast that everyone should stop at when travelling on the Great Ocean Road. Possibly even better than the Twelve Apostles.

The formations rising from the sea, without any help or interference from man. Nature is awe inspiring!

Did the Great Ocean Road trip in May 2015 and the weather was far from idea, but I still had a great time. I would recommend the Bay of Islands to anyone thinking of paying a visit. If I can enjoy it in a howling gale, think how good it must be when the sun is shinning.

Very nice views and would have been better on a nice day. Great for the photographers and would make very nice photos on a day when the sun was shining.

Very beautiful bay with number of natural limestones. The weather is cold and windy which makes the waves quite high. Will make you spechless.

Beautiful views, especially during sunset. Driving up you will see the line of cars wanting to see the views.

I'm going to have to say that I prefer this place much more than I do the Twelve Apostles, most likely because it feels more natural and it is not overcrowded with all of the tourist trappings that you have just down the road. In fact when I have come here it has been quite peaceful and serene. The coast... More

Bay of Island is really nice. Very good trip. The sun shone and the bay was spendide. There wasn't too many people because the period was off season

Another fine view of the coast and the great Souhern Ocean, spectacular when the wind is blowing the breakers in.

This is a well presented viewing area of the lovely Great Ocean Road coastline. It's less well known than the 12 Apostles but certainly well worth the visit.
