It’s a lifestyle. A trip to Bella Terra is one of the best ways to spend a fun day of shopping and family time in Surf City USA. The outdoor mall inspired in the Tuscan villages of Italy offers a relaxed al-fresco atmosphere and is conveniently located off of 405 and Beach Blvd. It delivers a high-quality selection of department stores, boutiques, restaurants, bars, as well as a movie theatre and an open-air beer and wine garden. Here are five of the many reasons to visit Bella Terra:

1. Shopping

Bella Terra is hailed as one of OC’s premier centers due to its carefully curated selection of stores that offer affordable fashion for all styles. Whether you’re looking to update your closet with fresh new findings or need to find the perfect gifts for your loved ones, Bella Terra’s is your one-stop-shop.

Start your next retail therapy at some of America’s favorites stores, including Burlington Coat Factory, Rei, Old Navy, Kohls and Carter’s. Visit World Market to find products from all around the globe and don’t forget to check out Ulta Beauty for the most sought-after beauty, hair and skincare products. If surfing is your thing or if you’re a visitor looking to blend in with locals, then you need some of the latest surf fashion and gear, and for that, Huntington Surf and Sport is the place to go.

2. Dining

Take a shop break and dine! With an eclectic array of award winning restaurants and eateries that go from Mexican to Mediterranean fare and beyond, choosing where to have your next meal is no easy task and one of the reasons why we are obsessed with Bella Terra.

Thanks to California Pizza Kitchen, The Cheesecake Factory, Luna Grill, Buffalo Wild Wings and Kabuki Japanese Restaurant, a lot of quality cuisine is available for you here. Also, it’s definitely worth mentioning that EuroCaffe’s is one of our favorite brunch locations around town. Decisions, decisions.

Make your nights cinematic! Another reason we love Bella Terra is the state-of-the-art theaters at Century Huntington Beach. Enjoy your favorite films with first class amenities, such as power recliners and an extensive food menu that includes, in addition to the all time favorite movie theater popcorn, also pizza from Pizza Hut, hot dogs, churros, loaded nachos, cheese breads, craft brews, wine, gelato and much more. We’re not here to judge the size of your combo.

Catch the latest releases and feel like you’re in the movie at the amazing XD auditorium with a wall-to-wall screen capable of 35 trillion colors. Reserve your seats online at or buy directly at the box office. Become a Movie Club Member (I am one) and enjoy discounted tickets, food and rewards.

4. Events

Bella Terra got a major remodel just recently and is looking as good as ever. The new green area, inspired in Southern California’s Spanish roots, is the place where monthly events, festivals and live music gather the community.

In addition to the year-round events and live entertainment for visitors and residents, it is also worth checking the several monthly workshops offered by Paper Source, as well as the book groups, storytime and author events that Barnes and Noble hosts on a regular basis. And if you’re an outdoor-lover, take advantage of our city’s year-round sunshine by joining OrangeTheory on their monthly “Workout on the Green”, which is free to attend, with snacks from Eureka!, fun prizes and giveaways.
