Sorrento is a picturesque seaside village in the Mornington Peninsula, located an hour south-east of Melbourne’s CBD. Comprising both a beautiful bay at one end, with a picturesque pier and calm waters perfect for boating, kayaking and watersports, plus a surf beach at the other, Sorrento is a truly walkable destination with both stunning natural environment and many attractions.
A quaint and charming town with a historical streetscape scattered with limestone shop fronts, Sorrento promises diverse and sophisticated retail offerings, from fashion to interiors, antiques and more. A collection of art galleries beckon, as well as museum, day spa treatments and gourmet dining, with a range of restaurants, pubs and cafes, all walking distance apart.
Walk along the Sorrento-Portsea artists trail, fish or sightsee off the pretty pier or visit during the January Art Festival. Water adventures await, from surfing at wild and rocky back beach to snorkelling in the rock pools, rich with marine life or swimming/scuba diving with seals and dolphins. With plenty of stunning National Parks and Reserves to wander through, there is no shortage of amazing sights to see in Sorrento.
