Sorrento is a township in Victoria, Australia, located on the shores of Port Phillip on the Mornington Peninsula, about one and a half hours south of Melbourne. It is a largely upper-class, seaside resort area, but is also a quiet seaside township in the off-peak months of the year.
Sorrento is a popular tourist destination on the Mornington Peninsula, nestled between Portsea and Blairgowrie.
The shopping center of Sorrento is located on the edge of the bay of Ocean Beach Road. This hotel is located in the center of Sorrento, within walking distance of the main shopping areas, restaurants, bars and restaurants.

Sorrento was the site of the first official European settlement of Victoria which was established by Lieutenant Colonel David Collins in 1803. The monument honoring this historic event was erected at Eastern Sister, which is located near the southeastern shore of the bay of Sorrento. There is an elevated coastal walkway leading to an information center and several gazebos that offer panoramic views of the beach and bay.

Sorrento Historical Park, located on Point Nepean Road overlooking the bay, is a lush oasis that was established in 1870. It features European trees, colorful gardens, extensive lawns, barbecue facilities, rotunda, children's playground and hiking trails. Panoramic views of Policemans Point, the neighboring beaches and across the bay can be enjoyed from the park that stretches up to the tops of the cliffs.

The main access point to the oceanic beach of Sorrento is the southern end of Ocean Beach Road. The coast here consists of stretches of sandy beach that back to sand dunes and rocky cliffs. In the main car park there is a cafe, the local surf lifeguard club and several hiking trails. There are two main lookout points accessed by these trails - the Coppins Lookout, which offers views of the ocean beach and the sea, while the Websters Lookout overlooks the residential areas of Sorrento and Port Phillip in the distance. It looks and leads to rocky ocean shelves and stretches of sandy beach.

Another scenic area to explore along the ocean coast is Diamond Bay. It is protected by the Mornington Peninsula National Park, where there are several hiking trails and stairs that give access to the beach below.
Beside the sea, along one of the most beautiful coastline in Western Australia, this is an elegant and sunny ambient, with the intense blue of the sea. Here you can spend unique moments like candle light dinner, accompanied by excellent gastronomic suggestions, pleasing even the most demanding palate.
The mild and dry climate of Southern Italy makes a trip to this region beautiful any time of the year. People who do not like heat and would only like to feel the warmth of the Italian sun should choose to go during the off-season months, preferably in May, June, September or October. The hottest months are July and August, average temperatures during these months exceed 25 ° C!
