“Bucket List”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

If you have never surfed Bell's, you need to put in on your bucket list and just go do it!!! Had great waves and no crowds on Cup Weekend.

“Sublime!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Small, often congested car park. Occasional abuse from surfies for parking in "their" spot (!) Attractive coastline to explore at low tide.

“Great Aussie Beach!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Excellent spot to watch the surfers or participate! The day I visited it was freezing (in spring!) however there was plenty braving the breaks and can see why it's one of the best surf beaches around
