Had a couple of hour visit. There were a few surfers and a few visitors. The beach looked better than Bondi - better cared for, tidier and if we were to visit a beach this would be it - in July is was pretty deserted so we had a couple of glasses of mulled wine at the local café and... More

The beach itself has really nice sand and I'm sure the waves are generally pretty good for surfing (I'm not a surfer myself, so I'm not the best judge) but everyone wants to go to Manly so the beach can be pretty packed - more so when there's been a shark sighting and most people are confined to the beach!...

Our first time in Manly and we were impressed. Great beach and great cafes. Easy to find your way from the ferry terminal to the beach. Would love to go back and stay longer.

The sand was perfect but since we only had 4 hours we opted to walk through the town and down the beach towards the rocks on the right. The scenery was stunning and there was a gift shop that was so cute I could have bought one of everything. The lady running the information center is also very helpful

I loved this beach, very laid back environment, clean safe and warm water. When I was there there was little market stalls to mooch around.

worth a look, but these beaches are not a patch on Perth beaches, they are the best in the world, surf is not much good at Manly, good for family as safe beach in great location.

We took the Sunday ferry (flat $2.50 all day) over to Manly from Circular Quay and arrived around 9:30 AM. The surfers were out but the Corso and the beach itself was still quiet. It was a beautiful day and by 11:00 AM the place was bustling with people and it had a great energy. We walked the full length... More

We took the ferry on one way as our friends parked the car in Manly before picking us up from our hotel. While ferry was enjoyable, the moment we landed we decided to take a stroll along the beach. It was quite refreshing especially after we grabbed a coffee on a windy cold day. The beach was quite clean with... More

The ferry through Sydney harbour to Manly was enough for me to leave my two-cents on this -- the trip back welcomed the spotting of a whale. The atmosphere of Manly is really fantastic, the hustle and bustle of the shopping area is only eclipsed by that of the fantastic beach. Of my few days in Sydney, Manly was the... More
