Not what I would term a relaxing beach just so so many people complete with many show offs over displaying themselves. All the same it is a nice beach and worth a look. Hard though to find a piece of sand to call your own

One of must-see places when you are visiting Sydney even for 2 or 3 days. It's easy to reach by taking a ferry from the wharf near Sydney Opera House by using Opal card. It's a very beautiful beach that you will want to swim...More

Great water temperature and fun surf. Much more pleasant that the tragic Bondi. Good scale and design on the Esplanade and only a short stroll from the Ferry

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
