Sorrento is a very popular tourist destination on the Mornington Peninsula, located after Blairgowrie and before Portsea, just 90 minutes from Melbourne CBD.
The cosmopolitan village is famous for its quaint heritage designer label boutiques, galleries, cafes, furniture and homeware stores. The iconic Sorrento Hotel with stunning views of the bay boasts some of the best pub food on the Peninsula.
The beaches of Sorrento are as equally famous as the village, being on the narrow part of the Peninsula and featuring the contrasting front and back beaches. Looking out to Port Phillip Bay on the north side, Sorrento front beach features a lovely foreshore, and the iconic Sorrento Pier, which links the Mornington Peninsula with Queenscliff via the passenger and car ferry.
Sorrento Back Beach, on the south side of the village, is a spectacular ocean with safe swimming areas looking out onto Bass Strait. There are a number of stunning walking tracks which wind both along the foreshore and into the hills and native bushland.
Sorrento is a beautiful coastal town, and a great central location to holiday on the Mornington Peninsula. In contrast to its neighbouring suburbs, Sorrento has many apartments to rent, if this is the accommodation preference over holiday homes, of which it also has an abundance.
