Cowrie Beach lies on the western side of Phillip Island between Point Grant to the south and Point Sambell to the north in the Phillip Island Conservation Reserve. It's a nice area for diving and snorkelling.

This area is more sheltered from moderate southerlies and in suitable weather an easy shallow dive can be had on patchy weed and reef with smaller fish and marine life. The gutters close to shore are worth investigation when conditions allow.

Cowrie Beach at Cowrie Bay is a west facing, rocky bay lying 1 kilometre north of Point Grant. The bay is backed by low dunes and the bluffs. It is bordered by basalt platforms and reefs, which at low tide almost fill the bay. A steep, narrow, 400 metre long sandy beach backs the rocks. Waves average 1 metre at the beach at high tide, however at low tide, they break over the rocks and reefs seaward of the beach.
