This is a breathtakingly beautiful 10 km coastal walk. You can either start from The Spit to Manly or vice versa. Make sure you wear comfortable shoes, and have plenty of water and some snacks on you as there are no shops along the way....More

The day I visited was a very good weather and there were so many people, local and tourists. It is another tourist spot to me.

You can walk the length of Manly Beach but the best stretch of the walk is from Manly to Shelly Beach. I absolutely love this short stretch of walk and do it regularly. If you are an overseas visitor doing a day trip to Manly,...More

We decided on a whim to jump on the ferry from Sydney Harbour and Manly did not disappoint. It was a nice costal walk with a nice an relaxed feel to it.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants

August is a lovely time of the year for walking because it is not too hot. You can wear a jacket or jumper to start off but you will probably find that you take the jumper off once you have walked and warmed up. If it is a... More
