"Sorrento Australia - a perfect seaside town with two beaches!"
This is a LOVELY seaside getaway not too far from Melbourne so it's no wonder the locals love getting away to the Mornington Peninsula.
The atmosphere and area is so inviting that it deserves to feature amongst some of the best Australian beaches.
How To Get To The Beach
Sorrento is a small town on the Mornington Peninsula which is made up of a string of coastal towns along Port Phillip Bay. The Peninsula is shaped like Italy but small so everything is close together.
It's only about an hour's drive out of Melbourne so it's perfect for a day trip or a longer trip incorporating the Great Ocean Drive

Why Visit This Beach
Visiting the beach is more about the lifestyle and the town and being able to eat out overlooking the water views.
There are two beaches -front beach and back beach. The front is best for swimming as back beach is rocky and very rough - spectacular to watch though.
There are plenty of boat trips you can do to see the dolphins that swim nearby too. You can also take trips to go diving or just cruise the bay.
