Azure Beach Retreat - Spa Dreaming
Rye, Victoria, Australia
Additional Location Information
Ocean Blue Retreat is located close to the National Park which borders the rugged back ocean beaches along the narrow strip of land that is the Southern Tip of the Mornington Peninsula at Rye. There is a beach approximately 500 metres away from the house where we wouldn't recommend swimming but there are rock pools at low tide where you can explore the beauty of the nature of this area.
The historic township of Sorrento is only a 10 - 15 minute drive away toward to furthermost tip of the Peninsula, here you will find beautiful shopping for clothes, furniture, food, art and antiques. From here you can also get the ferry across the bay to Queenscliff for either a visit and a return journey or to take your car and start your journey down the Great Ocean Road. Sorrento is also your access to Portsea and the Point Nepean National Park where you will find the historic Quarantine station, and the Point Nepean Fortifications and learn how it was used to defend the country. The beaches here are sublime with nobody around and no view of any sorts of residence just ocean and perfect beaches.
In the opposite direction from the house it is another 10 - 15 minutes by car to the hinterland of Red Hill and the wineries and food producers. Spend time amongst the 60+ wineries, enjoy tastings of olives, cheese, chocolate, beer, fruit to name but a few or visit the mazes at Ashcombe or the fun filled adventure mazes and tree surfing and tube sliding at the Enchanted Maze.
Only minutes down the road is the reknowned Peninsula Hot Springs where you can bathe in the natural hot springs and relax in the mineral pools and spas or indulge yourself and have a private treatment. There is also a cafe here so spend all day.
The township of Rye is only a few minutes by car and here you will find the safe bayside beach for the kids to swim in, a huge playground, the restaurants, cafes and shopping make this township one of the premier destinations in the summer with a funfair on the beach.
So much to do on the Mornington Peninsula and we have only mentioned what is around and about the house within a 10 minute drive...just imagine what you could find a little further afield!?
