A long and beautiful beach. There are lifeguards so safe. The breakers are not huge but could be intimidating for poor swimmers. There are other beaches close by but the main beach is really worth a visit. Manly is a lovely place with shops and plenty restaurants. A really good place to get away from the city and experience a... More

We had no idea of the breadth of Manly Beach. The town is lively and charming, with lots of eating and shopping choices. The main street had these cool looking, low fountains bubbling up in a row, and we loved the many stations where you could fill your bottle with good drinking water. There was a public restroom on the... More

It was the best beach I saw in Sydney. Also the area around it has old world charm and love the frisco kind of roads. Ate at an Indian restruant close by.

Take the ferry and walk to Manly Beach through the business district of Manly. ( the upper floors of the businesses look old and quaint but the shops are very touristy and new). The beach is big and lovely and uncrowned on the day we went. Much bigger and nicer than Bondi Beach and easier to get to. Interesting that... More

Do go and see Manly Beach but it is "blowy" so be warned! It is ocean side and very rare for it be calm ..... similar to Surfers Paradise! Well worth going to sea, but if you are looking for a calmer beach .... then when you get off the ferry and leave the wharf turn immediately left, and there... More

Beautiful beach, many cafes and restaurants. A great place for people watching and catching some rays( from the sun ) of course.

Handy location where you can easily get there. By ferry or by bus. There is shower facility provided, coastal walk along the beach. Only walk cross the road, there is a shopping arcade, so convenient in every thing. A great place you can't be missed.

The Manly Beach is lovely! In my opinion, a lot more beautiful than Bondi Beach but probably not as well known. The ferry ride over is really cheap and a lot of fun and includes specatactular views of the Opera House and Sydney skyline. The lively and colorful street from the ferry station to Manly Beach is a lot of... More

Love Manly Beach so much that we came to live here. Surfing, Nippers, restaurants, people-watching-what is not to love? easy to get to on the ferry-sometimes people mistake the small harbour beaches at the ferry station and wonder what the fuss is about (lovely as they are). Walk down the Corso and jump into the surf.
