Cape Woolamai

Cape Woolamai is located at the south-eastern tip of Phillip Island, just a few kilometres from Newhaven. It is home to the Cape Woolamai Coastal Reserve and Victoria’s first National Surfing Reserve in recognition of its rich surfing heritage and pristine natural environment. Cape Woolamai has a world-renowned surf beach, Woolamai Beach Surf Life Saving Club and a popular Safety Beach. Continuing southwards along the coast is Magic Lands Beach which is backed by steep cliffs, and the fascinating rock formation of The Pinnacles is located near the end of the cape.

The commercial centre of Cape Woolamai is located along Vista Place and its junction with Woolamai Beach Road and includes a small supermarket, surf shop and several eateries. A general store and cafe can be found closer to the beach along Cottosloe Avenue. Accommodation in Cape Woolamai provides the perfect base for any surfing or beach adventures.
