You can also find plenty of charming shops, eateries and bars along the bustling Ocean Beach Road, as well as numerous museums and galleries.

    From surf to turf – Sorrento by land and sea

    Waterfront recreation is the order of the day in seaside Sorrento. On the protected Port Phillips Bay side of the peninsula, you can find broad, sandy beaches with plenty of space for swimming and sunbathing. The area's surfers tend to flock to Sorrento Back Beach, on the other side of the peninsula. Here, you'll encounter rocky coastline along the Bass Strait between the Indian and Pacific oceans. Back on land, history buffs can get up close and personal with the region's past at the Collins Settlement Site, home to the site of the first European settlement in Victoria.

    Days of future past in historic Sorrento

    Once you've seen every last inch of Sorrento's epic shoreline, you'll find plenty to do on terra firma, too. You can get a closer look at local history at the Sorrento Museum, where you can peruse the archives of the Sorrento Historical Society in a striking building from the 19th century. The museum also offers guided tours of notable sights throughout the town, including the numerous historic limestone buildings along Ocean Beach Road. In Point Nepean National Park, you can explore Fort Nepean, where you'll find military history exhibits in a preserved 18th-century fort.

    Pleased to beach you – Sorrento's wonderful waterfront

    A short drive from the hustle and bustle of Melbourne, Victoria's capital city, Sorrento is a relatively laid-back town with plenty of leafy parks and residential neighborhoods. The city lies on the narrow Mornington Peninsula, separating the mild waters of Port Phillip Bay from the ocean currents of the Bass Strait. The peninsula's 2 sides are very distinct, with broad, sandy beaches lining the protected inner bay and plenty of rocky shoreline along the outer coast. Whatever your preference, you won't have any trouble finding Sorrento vacation rentals with killer views and easy access to the area's scenic waterfront.
