... it from the cliffs, you have an uninterrupted view out to sea*... and, of course, of the surfers.

You can really catch some big wave here; particularly at Bells Beach. And no we didn't try it. I took one look at the waves mercilessly battering a poor guy in the surf and decided it was Pros only.
