Island Wining & Dining

The Alkira Beach Shack is located just 3 minutes' walk from beautiful Redrock Beach and only 8 minutes from the vibrant town centre of Cowes. It's also close enough for a short wander home from dinner but also lovely and secluded to get a much-needed dose of peace and tranquillity.

The super stylish and retro fit-out of the shack feels homely and comfortable, and there is a fireplace at your disposal inside and on the balcony. This bright and spacious beach house is massive and sleeps up to 8 - with plenty of room left for activities. Alkira has a unique character embellished with vintage design posters and surf boho pieces (owner Georgina's signature touch!) is the ideal place to unwind and chill out.

On the island, there's plenty to do. We couldn't fit it all in! We walked the Pinnacle Lookout and Redrock beach, enjoyed vino and yum bites at Phillip Island Winery (and Purple Hen) and got all fired up redlining the go-karts around the Port Phillip Circuit.

Things We Did

  • Lookout
  • Food & Drink
  • Experience
The Pinnacle lookout
We soaked up the rugged and pristine nature of Phillip Island on a short walk to the Pinnacle lookout....
Phillip Island Winery
Great wine and activities in an open terrace. The food went down perfectly with the famous fizzy shiraz too!...
Best Coffee on the Isle: G'day Tiger
Best hole in wall coffee distributor for your daily brew. This helped us get the engines revving before we hit the karts!...
Redlining on The Race Track
This was the highlight of the trip, well worth it if you're visiting the island. We redlined those things around the track and it was thrilling!...
