Stroll to the north facing Cowes beach - voted "Best Beach for Kids in VIC" ... "The water is usually calm. The beach is wide, there's plenty of shade near there's not too far to go to reach the main street." (Herald Sun 4/1/16).
Stroll along the beach near our place to the main street of Cowes where you can enjoy coffee or a meal, whilst soaking up the atmosphere of this seaside village. The Cowes boat ramp is just a minute's drive away from our place and in good weather, enjoy breakfast or lunch right on the beach at the boat ramp cafe.
Within a short drive from the Grape Escape are the Penguin Parade, Koala Park, the quaint village of Rhyll, indoor children activities, historic Churchill Island, fabulous wineries and some of Australia's best surf beaches. The Herald Sun nominated the island's Woolami Beach one of "Victoria's Best Surf Beaches."
The island also boasts Victoria's 'Best Beach Rocks' - being Cape Woolamai Forrest Caves, a series of caverns where sea has eroded the low tide the headlands at Smiths Beach have plenty of rock pools to explore.
Phillip Island is a famous perfect summer getaway - yet the Grape Escape offers an equally relaxing experience any time of year. In the cooler weather there is nothing better than an invigorating walk on the beach followed by nights by the Coonara fire with a family game, good book or a good friend!
