I went after some heavy rain and there was rubbish absolutely everywhere. Quite shameful Sydney. I went there to see some nice nature after not really enjoying the Sydney city stuff, and was very disappointed with it.

Beautiful beach, great energy and vibe. Lots of shops, restaurants and bars. Great place for an easy stroll, kick off your shoes and have a cold beer, or wine, people watching, and just relax.

This is set off Manly beach and is a nice walk to take around the coast, however it can get hilly, but then you can just walk back. Loved the views and there is a coffee shop along the route.

Despite the heat we walked for what seemed like hours, trying to trace all the streets where my ancestors lived in the early 1800s. Many streets were named after them which made it worthwhile. The views across the water back to Sydney are incredible..

first part paved and very easy, with lively beach scene and beautiful vistas. Going up to the look-outs @ Shelly Beach and walking back through the wild brush was the best part, but you need to be prepared for up and down and unpaved paths

Great little walk for the traveller staying in Manly or coming in for the day via the ferry. Bring your snorkle and fins to enjoy the underwater scenery. See if you can walk all the way to North Head and back - great views!

We got down from the Ferry and walked towards the beach and on both sides of the tiad were those quaint little shops selling souvenirs and nice little restaurants selling various cuisine.I specially enjoyed the sports bar.
