Description: 

Bell Block is a beach break and an outer reef break, on a sandy beach, located north of New Plymouth. The outer reef break features a peak with a left hander. Its a long paddle out and needs a good size swell to get it working, but when its on its a powerful, hollow wave. Leave the outer reef to the experts. There is also the beach break which can be a punchy, fun wave. Good for all surfers.

Directions: 
From New Plymouth city centre head east on Devon Street east, then continue onto State Highway 3 out of town. When you get to the Bell Block area, turn left onto Mangati Road, down to the beach.
