The town takes its name from the beach which in turn takes its name from Ebenezer Cowley, a horticulturalist and overseer at Kamerunga State Nursery. Prior to 16 November 1991 the town was called Inarlinga.
The Australian Defence Force's Cowley Beach Training Area includes the northern part of the beach and much of its hinterland as well as the nearby Lindquist Island. This facility is used for amphibious warfare training, and also includes a rocket range and a cantonment area.
