I don’t know how I had forgotten about the scenic the cliffs and back beaches in Sorrento (a seaside town south of Melbourne). So, a few weeks back when we went for a walk along Coppin’s track, we were reminded by what we have been missing all these years!
Coppin’s track is a walk that starts at Ocean Beach in Sorrento and winds for about 4km along the clifftops to Diamond Bay. Having said that, the track actually keeps going and you can go quite some way along the coastline towards Rye and possibly beyond.
You don’t have to start at Ocean beach though as there are also plenty of points along the way that is accessible from the main road. Pressed for time, we did just that by starting our walk from St Pauls road that’s not far from where we stayed.
Sunny winter days have been few and far in between this year. And we felt we couldn’t just sit around. Seems such a waste. So, we said we could just go for a walk and that’s how we ended up on the track. But as we only started late and winter days are short, we managed to only walk a small section of it to Diamond Bay. It got dark way too quickly and combine that with the chilly blast from the South, we quickly retreated back to our car.
But not before, we rediscovered the spectacular coastline from this walk. It had secluded beaches, soaring cliffs, unbelievable views and sunsets to die for. Enough to convince us that we had to come back.
