Sorrento

Live the good life amid Sorrento's imposing limestone buildings, whether you're dining by the water, browsing galleries and boutiques or swimming alongside dolphins.

Dining in style
Spot bottlenose dolphins and feed pelicans on the foreshore from your table at the Baths Restaurant in the old tearooms. Feast on delicious 'pub grub' atop the cliffs at historic Hotel Sorrento or simply enjoy fish and chips on the beach followed by homemade gelati.

In vogue
Spend a laidback afternoon browsing antiques and designer labels in quaint heritage boutiques. Wander the limestone shopfronts for beach and city clothes, furniture and homewares, artworks, jewellery and maritime keepsakes.

The seaside air brings out artistic flair. See it on show at Sorrento's hive of galleries, and get colourful during the January art festival. Take a walk along the Sorrento-Portsea Artists Trail and see the views as they were captured by renowned local and international artists.

History
A walk around Sorrento's village is experiencing living history, but for a detailed look at the region's remarkable history, make your way to the Nepean Historical Museum and Pioneer Cottage, and Collins Settlement Historic Site.

Seaside escape
Splash about at the village bay beach and have a crack at leisurely sea kayaking. Surf the waves from Bass Strait at the wild, rocky back beach. Head off from the pier for seal and dolphin swimming adventures, fishing trips and bay cruises, or explore the waters below on a scuba diving expedition.
