Watch from the shore as San Remo's fishing boats return home each day with a fresh load of seafood. The gateway to Phillip Island and a popular holiday destination, this authentic fishing village is the perfect getaway for seafood lovers, keen fisherfolk and for those looking to enjoy Phillip Island's many natural attractions.
Fresh is best
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. Cast a line off the jetty or, for some serious ocean angling, join a fishing charter and head out to sea.
For freshness of a different kind, take a walk to San Remo Bakehouse and dose up on pies, pasties, pastries and cakes.
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.
Soak up the village atmosphere in local cafes and restaurants, peruse the artworks at Kelly & Gemelli Art & Design, or get the kids together and head down to the jetty to feed the local pelicans.
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.
Those staying a little longer can choose from a wide range of accommodation, from local hotel rooms to resort-style indulgence.
