The Waves Apartments

Phillip Island

The Waves Apartments offer beach frontage and beachside accommodation in the heart of Phillip Island with varying accommodation options from family style self-contained apartments to couple retreats with 2-person spa.

The Waves is the culmination of over 25 years in the accommodation industry at Phillip Island. This is Phillip Island’s newest, most modern and conveniently located accommodation.

In less than a minute’s walk across the foreshore, guests will be on one of the state’s safest and cleanest beaches – a great place to relax or commence a scenic walk. The beach stretches for miles in either direction.

Alternatively, take a short drive to explore many must-see attractions nearby.

The Waves is situated at the quiet eastern-most end of The Esplanade, right on the foreshore in the heart of Cowes. Along the foreshore there is a lovely treed park offering sheltered picnic grounds, BBQ area and an extensive playground.

Accommodation is suited to couples and families alike, with a second TV as well as a comfortable lounge in each unit. Dining options are endless for guests at The Waves. All apartments offer fully-equipped modern kitchenettes and there are also shared BBQ facilities within the complex.

Just a stroll away, explore Cowes’ many shops, restaurants and seaside cafés – there is something to suit all tastes.

The Waves’ staff are available to arrange transfers or assist in purchasing of ticketing to any of the local attractions on Phillip Island.
