What a blissful day to explore Sorrento on the Mornington Peninsula…does life really get any better than this!? Spring days are finally starting to warm up and beginning to show the Mornington Peninsula at its most stunning. Sorrento is only a couple of hours from Melbourne CBD by car, but you really do feel like you are a world away from the bustle of city life.

Ahh Sorrento, often the destination of childhood holiday memories, it still has so much to offer whether you are looking for a weekend break away with friends, your dog or that week or two with the kids over the Summer.

The Baths at Sorrento…it’s good, ask the Seagull

Places to Eat & Drink
Stopping for lunch or dinner at The Baths is always a treat (photo above). What a beautiful spot to sit and relax for a glass or two.

Who can pass up a scone with 180-degree views over Sorrento Ocean Beach? I don’t know about you, but I can never pass up a cream tea. Check out the cafe menu at All Smiles where I am sure you will find something you can’t resist.

Eating Out Mornington Peninsula
The Best Vanilla Slice Ever!

In my opinion, The Vanilla Slice Cafe is a must for any visit to Sorrento and I always take my parents here when they come to visit. My Dad still talks about it.

These are just a few of our recommendations…there are so many more scrumptious options.

Any break away is not complete without shopping and Sorrento will certainly not disappoint. Stroll along the high street and discover quaint interior styling boutiques, antique stores, clothing boutiques, and art galleries which are in abundance. Throughout the Summer there are also some wonderful local craft and makers markets. Check out the dates on Craft Markets Sorrento
