Reviews of Cowes, VIC

21st October 2021

"Affordable Coastal Living"

Cowes gives you everything you need to enjoy quiet beachside lifestyle while still having easy access to great food, shops and coffee. With easy access to all the attractions Phillip Island has to offer it is only becoming more popular with locals and holiday markers alike. Cowes is now home to 3 of the island's best coffee shops and several restaurants I can't get enough of. It sits in easy reach of the surf beaches, national park and Phillip Island Winery.

"Overcrowded in the Summer and in desperate need of some love"

Phillip Island is undoubtedly a lovely place, but the traffic to get to Cowes in Summer is nothing short of ridiculous. It could take up to 90 minutes to get from Bass to Cowes in Summer. The other issue with such a popular tourist destination is not the locals, but rather the visitors who don't always take care of the place. A lot of shops for rent on the main street of Cowes and the shopping strip has become very dated.

"Great place to relax"

Churchill Island is a great place to visit when you're on Philip Island - the food is brilliant at the Farm and I believe the Chill Island events are great.

My son loved the farm animals and the freedom to run around.
