Cowes Beach is one of the main tourist attractions on Phillip Island.

Home to a significant concentration of accommodation and activities visitors love, it’s complete with all the tourist facilities and amenities you’ll need for a relaxing holiday.

Cowes Beach, Address, Jetty, Swimming & Facilities, Phillip Island VIC

All the facilities are well-maintained, and there are two main beaches near town to choose from: the primary Cowes Beach and Mussel Rocks. Cowes Beach is located beside the jetty, and both beaches are rather short but great for swimming. Cowes, in particular, is ideal for visitors looking for a spot to picnic.

Hiring a boat is highly recommended, too; it’s one of the most popular tourist activities in Cowes. Barbecuing by the beach or going on a cruise around the bay are great ways to take in the sights and sweeping ocean views. You may even see the adorable seals that reside along Seal Rocks if you’re lucky.

The holiday season means this area tends to pick up and get very busy, but it’s still a good destination for a getaway. Excellent restaurants, cafes, and entertainment are never too far, and as a commercial centre, you’ll have access to everything you need nearby.

Considering there are numerous accommodation options here, Cowes Beach is the ideal place to base yourself as you explore the myriad of attractions.

Just 10 minutes away is the Phillip Island Grand Prix Circuit and the famous Penguin Parade, so there is lots to enjoy with the entire family in tow.
