Corinella is a small and relaxed coastal town that overlooks Western Port. It is located a few kilometres west of the Bass Highway, south of Grantville.
The town has a general store and a couple of cafes. Harold Hughes Reserve, located right in the town centre, is a major park that includes a town hall, tennis courts, skate park, playground, BBQ and picnic facilities.
Corinella is surrounded on almost three sides by water, with a coastal reserve protecting the coastline. The focal point on the coast is the area at the end of Peters Street where there is a jetty, a boat ramp and an elevated park that provides fine views over the bay towards French Island.
West of the jetty is Settlement Point where there is a monument to early explorers and a walking track through the headland to a lookout at its western point. From there is a walking track that heads in a south-easterly direction and extends for several kilometres along the coastline.
Only two kilometres of open farmland separates Corinella from its small neighbouring town of Coronet Bay to the south. Named after the bay which it overlooks, Coronet Bay has a general store, recreation reserve, a sandy beach and boat ramp.
