Tuck into delectable fresh seafood in San Remo, the gateway to Phillip Island, but be quick – the resident pelicans are also partial to the village’s bounty.

Freshest fish

Snap up fresh fish and seafood at San Remo Fisherman’s Cooperative. Sample freshly-cooked catches from the boats that fish out of the port at a local hotel or café. If you’re keen to catch your own dinner, take a fishing charter out into the ocean or fish from the jetty. You’ll be competing with the friendly pelicans, which get fed on the foreshore at 12pm daily.

Scenery and historic landmarks by foot

Tackle the six-kilometre (one way) George Bass Coastal Walk to Kilcunda. See the historic coal bore at Bore Beach, and wander on to Shelly Beach, Griffiths Point and Quarry Rocks, where stone was quarried to build Melbourne business chambers. Walk the bridge over to the island for soaring views.

Village life

Wander the village shops and enjoy the picnic, barbecue and playground facilities. Book a caravan, motel room or go resort-style in honour of the village’s Italian Riviera namesake.
