Wow, this place is so overrated. More and more people are bringing speakers, so if you expected to have a nice, relaxed day at the beach then be prepared to be disappointed. As in the whole of the Northen Beaches, the parking is ridiculously expensive.

Experience manly beach sparkling in the afternoon sun while eating beautifully prepared Japanese food. Lots of choice on the menu at Minato- all presented simply. A relaxed chilled atmosphere- with the staff eager to pleas.

Jump on the ferry in the city, when you alight in Manly it’s a few hundred metres and you are at the beach. Iconic, open and welcoming, Manly beach is great for those who want to couple a good beach experience with a few options...More

In my humble opinion Manly beats Bondi ANY DAY! The town, the Beach and the ferry there everything is amazing! The trip is a small cruise of the harbour for the price of a train ticket! Get on the boat first and sit outside do...More

Loved visiting Manly beach. Nice promenade and the beach itself was not crowded like Bondi beach. Well connected by ferry.

Manly Beach, rips and all, was just superb this week! The water was cooling and refreshing amidst the heatwave and the waves as they crested 'gnarly' and giving one a means of riding in to the foreshore. This beach was full but not impossibly so....More

The Christmas holiday season & winter time in the US equals summer in Australia. By the time March rolls around, it's the rainy season in New South Wales, all along the Sydney harbour & southern coastal regions. Manley is a unique and special Beach, much...More

Manly beach is such a vibrant, colorful and full of life place. You can swim or surf, you can walk or ride a bike, you can grab a coffee or enjoy good food, you can take the ferry or you can just take some pictures....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
