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
We visited Manley day and night. It was lovely going one evening to see Sydney harbour lite up on the return journey.More

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
as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.

Manly Beach is an excellent location. In addition to the beach there are some great restaurants and bars and a whole coastline of beaches. The of Sydney is only 30 mins by ferry or 15 mins by fast ferry. Several great walks are around. The tourism office is at the wharf. Also have a beer/meal at the 4 Pines Brewery across from the wharf and or the 16’ Skiff Club.

The beauty of Sydney and it’s suburbs, is you can simply walk out of your hotel - and find little communities, neighbourhoods where all the locals are which have great cafes and dining options. It’s safe to say any hotel or Home you stay at - there is something nearby. Plus it’s the fun of exploring.
Manly has a great kayak hiring place on its wharf on the esplanade there - which would be a better area to kayak, as Bondi is a surf beach.
