1 Cowes Beach
Cowes 3922, VIC

Cowes is the focus of all activities on Phillip Island and where most of the residents and visitors stay. It is located on the middle of the north shore of the island, far enough east for its jetties to be clear of ocean swell, and far enough west to be clear of the tidal flats off Observation Point. The town has all the facilities of a thriving summer tourist and holiday industry. A well-maintained foreshore reserve runs along the northern shore of the town, with beaches lying below the 10 m high bluffs. There are two beaches adjacent to the centre of Cowes: Mussel Rocks; and the main Cowes Beach, next to the ferry jetty. Both beaches are relatively short, face due north and receive low wind waves. Mussel Rocks Beach lies between Mussel Rocks and the ferry jetty; while the main Cowes Beach is immediately east of the jetty, with Erehwon Point forming the eastern boundary. At high tide the beaches are relatively narrow and steep; while at low tide, they become exposed with shallow rock and tidal flats extending out toward the jetty.

Two relatively safe beaches close to shore. The only problems to watch are the vessels using the jetty and tidal currents, which run off and parallel to the beach....
