Manly is such a great big beautiful beach that it is a great day to take the ferry and go over. The sand is great and the beach is clean. There was a nice breeze off the water to keep things cool but pleasant. Due...More
We liked the vibe and feel of this beach over Bondi. The beach is beautiful, very clean, restaurants and shopping close by. We stayed in circular quay so we rode the fast ferry there and it cost us $9.70 on our Opal card, which is...More
A great day out on the Harbour to travel to Manly by Sydney Ferries where you alight on the Harbour side, and enjoy all it has to offer.
Then walk down “The Corso” Street to the surf side of the ocean of Manly & enjoy...More
Beach is beautiful which stunning water and sand. Unfortunately there were quite a few rips when we went and we were advised by life guards to remain between the flags. Unfortunately for us the flags weren't placed very far apart due to the volume of...More
We LOVED Manly Beach! We were there for NYE and it wasn't too terribly crowded. We got there around 11 each day and still were able to get rental lounge chairs and umbrella. The water was super cold though! Lots of shops around plus places...More
Beautiful beach but massive amounts of tourists on the main streets and the beach. Lots of screaming babies, etc. some very nice places once you get off of the main streets. Nice for a very quick ferrry ride and brief visit, but definitely not quaint...More
Go for a walk along the promenade. Beach volleyball lessons - even in winter, dogs being taken for walks (one even carrying its' own lead). Catch the Ferry from Circular Quay and see the Harbour from a different perspective then have lunch in Manly. A...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.
