How To Plan A Group Getaway To The Coast

Sand, sea and, sun and superb company… that’s pretty much all the ingredients for an awesome group getaway to the coast! But this recipe for a good time requires some careful planning, leadership and organisation skills – it’s not as easy as it looks.

The team at Ocean Blue Coastal Retreats want your group to have the best possible time when you’re planning a Mornington Peninsula coastal getaway. So, that’s why we’ve come up with a short guide on how to plan a group getaway to the MP. Enjoy!

Be the leader!

Every ship needs its captain. If you’re reading this blog, you’re probably the leader of this group expedition to the coast! Without a driving force behind your group getaway, it probably wouldn’t happen – that’s why it’s necessary to put your leadership skills to use and be the sole organiser of the trip. And trust us: everyone will thank you for it later.

Book ahead

Coastal retreats book out pretty darn quickly, especially in the summer. Booking ahead is a must when you’re looking for a group getaway. Check out our luxury holiday accommodation here and see which dates are available. Then, pitch some dates to your crew and see what works.

Settle on location

Where on the Mornington Peninsula suits the needs of your group? Are we all wine buffs who want to check out the best vineyards in the region? Beach bums who love nothing more than spending all day in the sun? Golfing enthusiasts looking for a swing at the 18-hole RACV Cape Shank course? Mornington Peninsula offers the perfect getaway for all types of travellers.

Organise the cooking duties

If you’re a natural leader or organiser, you probably love a good Excel spreadsheet.
