Where to stay in Summerlands

Whereas the protected area of the Summerlands peninsula itself does not offer accommodations, elsewhere on Philip Island you will find a range of lodgings to suit a diverse set of needs. Most options cluster in the north of the island, in the Cowes district. Hotels, RV parks, and apartments line the coastline, offering good sea views and many providing transport services so that you can arrive at Summerlands when the parade begins.
