So much to see and do on the beach. Very clean. There are a lot of walks along the beach and rocks that are relatively easy for most to achieve.

Beautiful and clean beach It's recommended to take a ferry from Sydney harbor to manly to reach here. Visit the nearby bars they serve great beer. You will be pleased if you are a surfing enthusiast.

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

The Manly ferry is worth the trip. Come for the day, and have a sunset dinner over the wharf. Bring your swimmers, as the water may still be warm for snorkeling. Recommend bike hire to see more area, in a shorter amount... More
