The beach is a surf beach, very safe for swimming or surfing, nice golden sand and picture perfect. This is a must see if your traveling from overseas.

Due to the missing train line is Manly beach not so packed by backpackers. It offers pretty good surf, however very crowded any time and season. Manly is pretty windy and covered showers, changing rooms and toilet are insufficient. However Manly has the right vibe...More

Good for one day tour. Ferry is available from Circular quay. The ferry journey is awesome. You can view Sydney opera house, harbour bridge and Opera house while you are on ferry. Food shop available in Manly area.

Unfortunately our recent visit has seen it turn into an area of drunken yobs and depravity. There was many groups of drunken youths that appeared to have an issue with the proper use of the English language swearing at every opportunity whilst families with young...More

Hey Cloney! Sunset drinks on the harbour at Manly Cove, and a starlight ferry ride home....What a day, and what a way to enjoy Manly! Much more that just a sunny beach side destination. Next time, book a hotel and stay for the weekend! You'll...More

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
