Overview

San Remo

Get to know the gateway to Phillip Island, a lively seaside town where fishing and dining options abound and pelicans keep watch along the foreshore.

The sea's bounty

Celebrate all things aquatic in San Remo, home to Australia's largest shark fishing fleet. Cast a line off the jetty or, for some serious ocean angling, join a fishing charter and head out to sea.

Snap up fresh fish and seafood at San Remo Fisherman's Cooperative, or dine out at a local hotel and have it served up in true gourmet style. Head to the foreshore at noon for pelican feeding time and witness a merry crew of these birds gobble up their own seafood lunch.

Local treats

Soak up the village atmosphere in local cafes and pubs, or visit San Remo Bakehouse for picnic provisions and to satisfy your craving for baked goods. Peruse contemporary artworks and handmade jewellery at galleries and pick up knick-knacks and homewares at shops in town.

Looking for some summer fun? Time your visit to coincide with the annual San Remo Channel Challenge, a biathlon event and day festival featuring a swim from San Remo to Newhaven and then a run back across the bridge.

Coastal views

Walk in the footsteps of the island's early inhabitants on a stroll along the cliffs from San Remo to Kilcunda on the George Bass Coastal Walk. Take detours to deserted beaches and bays, passing by Quarry Rocks where stone was quarried to build banks and business chambers in Melbourne.
