Sorrento Beach

The township of Sorrento is situated at the end of the Mornington Peninsula.

From here you can catch the Ferry for a beautiful 40 min voyage across Port Phillip Heads (the Mouth of Port Phillip Bay) to Queenscliff and from there it is just an hour to Anglesea and the Great Ocean Road.

It is a popular alternative with tourists that want to see the 12 Apostles, Mornington Peninsula and the Penguins at Phillip Island without spending a day of their holiday driving around the Bay.

But today we are headed just 1.6 km (1 Mile) across the Peninsula to the Ocean Beach that faces Bass Strait.

Readers of my Blog may have already guessed by now that I am not fond of sitting on an overcrowded Swimming Beach getting Baked in the harsh Australian Sun.

I much prefer the wind in my hair and the sound of the surf any day!

This is where we come when a day trip to 'Blow the Cobwebs' away is needed.

And today it did not disappoint.

There are many more beautiful beaches along this coast but none (I know of) that have a Cafe with a view like this.

You can enjoy a warm meal and a cold drink (or Hot Coffee, Chocolate - whatever takes your fancy) and watch the waves from the comfort of the enclosed verandah.

We had an enjoyable day showing our Guest around this Seaside Town that truly has the best of Both Worlds.

The Morning was spent wandering around the Sorrento Township Street Market, introducing our Overseas Visitor to the delights of Local Produce and chatting to the Vendors.

After lunch we wandered along the freshly washed sand to The Point, where in Summer at low tide, children can play in a large rock-pool that is there. Today we were content to watch the Tide come in trying to guess how far each wave will reach.

Tomorrow will be a rest day for me before heading off for another Day Trip in the opposite direction!
