Lying at the far end of the "tourist trap" walk from the ferry, the Manly beach is a lovely sandy beach popular with surfers and swimmers, and a great place for walking, jogging or just sitting.

I'd suggest seeing both Manly and Bondi, then compare for yourself. They are different, but both are worth the ferry trip.

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

How would you recommend getting from the airport to Manly. (We want to stay in Manly & don't want to drag bags). What would a taxi cost & how long a ride would it be?
