At every turn, it's sheer shopping pleasure to satisfy everyone. TASTE .....an amazing array of flavours in over 100 cafes, restaurants, bars and eateries. Whether it's a lingering lunch of classy dining, a sumptuous seafood selection for dinner, fast and fresh takeaway or a walk along the beach front with an ice cream in hand. Any time of day or night, you'll find a taste to tempt. LIVE .....life and discover your hidden talents. Get active with surfing, sailing, scuba diving... and everything in between! Take a dip at the beach, or try your hand at beach volleyball. And when relaxation is on the agenda, treat yourself to a hotel stay or enjoy some pampering at one of our many salons. The perfect place for adventure or to relax and explore. FEEL ..... the sand between your toes after a long day at work. Absorb the geography and the nature that makes Manly special. Nestled between the harbour and the ocean, over 40 beaches and walkways give an escape to the daily grind. Just cast out a fishing line, pack a picnic basket, or bask in the sun. Relax in your favourite spot and soak up the serenity.

“Great beach”
Reviewed 3 April 2012 via mobile

The beach at Manley is beautiful and surprisingly well organised as well. Apart from the great standard surf, we were able to hire an umbrella and deck chairs (that took me back to my childhood) also. The lifeguards are well organised and are patched into the sound system along the beach to ensure people do not forget how strong the rip tide can be on the majority of Austalia's Pacific facing beaches. This was a great experience and a beach I would revisit again and again. If you want to sit and watch the the world go by, there are plenty of restaurants along the promenade and Los of water fountains and sheltered seating and trees along the promenade if you want to escape the sun for a while. I can see why this place is popular with visitors and people from Syndney. I would definitely visit again and again, in fact I will consider staying in Manley on my next visit to Sydney.

“Scenic walk to Shelly Beach”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

The walk from Manly and Shelly is best. Even better if you snorkel all the way to Shelly!

“Best of both worlds”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

Having the quiet harbour one side, walking through the Corso to the surf breach the other, it is just divine. Going early in the day would be better with less crowds just sitting quietly and enjoying the scenery is great, hiring a surfboard and getting into it even better

“Beautiful Area”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

Took the ferry to Manley and did the hike (about 6 miles) along the coast, through the brush, and then along the cliffs overlooking the ocean - very beautiful!

“Sun, sea and surf”
Reviewed 31 March 2012

Good surfing beach where you can spend the day watching the surfers and the kids in surf school.
Only a short walk through the town from the ferry terminal.
