We went two couples by ferry to the beach and also rented some chairs. The weather was good, about 25 degrees. We went bathing in the area between the flags. Big waves and clean beach. After a while though I ended up in some strong currents so had to get help from my boyfriend getting up to the beach. Scary.... More

We took the ferry and enjoyed a great view coming and going to Manly. There are 3 areas of interest. The Manly Harbor, the pedestrian area, and Manly Beach. All are worth exploring. The beach itself is beautiful. Very nice. We didn't go swimming, but we enjoyed the view. We highly recommend a visit to Manly/Manly Beach.

I am a local and with that knowledge and experience of Sydney beaches I rate Manly including North Steyne and Queenscliif beaches as the most beautiful City beaches of Sydney. 30 minute ferry ride from central Sydney Circular Quay the beach is surrounded by lovely headland to the north and southern area including the secluded Shelly Beach and marine park...

Take the ferry to this great beach suburb of Sydney. It is a short walk from the ferry to the beach and the atmosphere is laid back small town for such a short ferry ride from downtown Sydney (20 min). It's a great day trip.

I loved Manly beach. It was my favorite beach in the Sydney area. Plenty to do. Restaurants, bars, sightseeing and shopping.

we arrived at manly after catching the ferry and walked along the sandy beach which was full of surfers as there was a surf completion talking place this meant that the place was a hive of activity which just added to the whole attraction. The sun shone and the sea looked a magnificent blue. The sand was walk and smooth... More

Manly beach is a short ferry ride (17 mins express of 28 mins on the normal ferry) from downtown Sydney, but it feels like more. The beach is long, so doesn't feel too crowded. There are a lot of restaurants and bars along its length and a promenade for those who prefer not to walk on sand.

We had bad weather on our day at Manly but there are great restaurants (4 Pints) and some shopping so still plenty to do. Used the Ferry system to get out there.
