Surfing beach with a reef break that allows for gentle waves, good for novices, and a second reef break that delivers a little more excitement.

The bird life is amazing. The bream creek flows through the wet lands and there are many nesting birds. The plovers nest in the sand near the shore so please dont let your dogs off leash (there are signs but they are hard to see)....More

If you don't mind visiting a beach with nudists all over the place (and on freezing cold days!) and driving on an unsealed road for 2 km which was more like driving over corrugated iron, then go for it! Not my cup of tea!

Point Impossible is another one of the great surf beaches dotted all throughout this coastline and is located along the Torquay Foreshore reserve. A good spot even just to sit and watch the surfers as it was less crowded than Bells Beach.

I'm not a surfer so can't review that side of things but the beach is beautiful and has a good carpark with toilets. Only thing keeping it from getting 5 stars is the warning notice about strong tides and submerged objects which might put some...More

We cycled to the beach and sat for a while watching the surfers and the world going by. A lovely place to watch the awesome waves and relax.

Due to all the rain Geelong has had, this road is closed. Long walk to the beach and filled with potholes of water. Surfers get ready before you head to the beach.

Awesome waves with lots of surfers. Memorial and placards are very informative. Lots going on ready for the dawn service. Well worth a visit.

This beach was very popular, we went just before Easter and it was quite busy. I can imagine it getting quite packed during peak season. It was good for surfers and body boarders alike. We had a fun time
