If you are staying on the Mornington Peninsula one of the great places to stay is in a Sorrento bed and breakfast. This is one of the most beautiful places on the peninsula.
Sorrento is actually outside Melbourne Victoria and is on the western tip of the peninsula. There is a big transformation it makes in the summer from a very quiet little village to an area frenzied with tourists as they come to enjoy the area as a summer resort town.
There are a variety of scenic walks you can do, ferry rides, historic buildings and you can even watch the dolphins. This is a great place if you want to get away and have some fun.
When you are there, staying at a bed and breakfast in Sorrento may be just the ticket if you want to have a romantic time or just get away from the city. There is a variety of accommodation from the traditional b&b in Sorrento to small apartments. As an example, the Bilinga B & B and Cottages give you the quiet you need and plenty to do for both you and the kids.
You’ll stay in a cottage and the kids will have a park they can play in while you relax in the scenic views as you relax on the beach. You can visit art galleries, the children maze or a local restaurant for gourmet food.
If you are more into a traditional stay, a good example is the Dougal’s Bed & Breakfast. This is a Victorian home that sits in the middle of many fabulous gardens. In the summer you can take your breakfast in the garden or you can take it in your room. In the wintertime, you can cosy up to a fire.
You will find lots to do in Sorrento and the surrounding towns. Central to the reason why people head here is because they have many natural attractions of interest. One of the most popular things to do here is the Dolphin tours. This is where you can get up close and personal with the dolphins and seals from around the island. You can just watch them from the boat or you can actually swim with them. This is an experience that many people say you will never forget.
If you enjoy fishing and want to make it part of your trip, you will definitely find Sorrento as a great place to go fishing. You can hire a charter near the same area where you take the dolphin tours. Here you will find shrimp and speckled sea trout, red bass, mackerel and many other varieties of fish; you can fish from shore or from the boat.
Depending on when you go to your bed and breakfast in Sorrento Victoria you will find many events happening. In the summer you will find the Crafts market that happens the fourth Sunday of every month. You will find local crafts and produce for great prices. In January, you will be encompassed in the Art Festival and you will find great pieces of famous work by global artists.
As the day comes to an end and you are watching the sunset, it is a great time to go back to your Sorrento bed & breakfast for some rest and renewal for another day.
