The beach is long so plenty of space, nice town and shops to visit, with amenities selling everything you need and or forgot...parking isn't easy or cheap so look around for the best parking deals, my advice is to park in covered parking back from the sea front as its cheaper. Take a look at The Manly Sebel to stay... More

One of my favorite places! It's a beautiful beach with many things going on. You can go sightseeing, take a walk on the Corso, eat fish and chips, drink a booze at Steyne or New Brighton Hotel... Everything at the same beach! Friendly atmosphere. Easy to get there and to fall in love! ❤️

As children from the country we stayed at Manly for our Christmas holidays. 50 years later the magic of Manly remains. We love nothing better than walking along the Corso from the Manly ferry wharf to the ocean beach, winter or summer. The beach walkway has showcased the beach even more and the Norfolk pines complement the beach setting with... More

Great place for an easy break. Lots of good places to eat and see. Great beach and easy to walk from end to end. Ferry into Circular Quay is a great way to see Sydney Harbour. Had a relaxing break.

After an exhilarating ferry ride because of the big swells we enjoyed watching the surfers ride the big waves coming in to Manly Beach - a quiet break from the busy city and a lovely place to relax - also more shops and lovely seaside cafes and restaurants.

Manly Beach, like most coastal areas, is best during the summer months. The day I visited, it had been raining. Only one surfer could be seen on the beach and a handful of people walking near the shoreline. Instead of a blue Australian sky, everything was grey - the ocean, the sky, the light. Manly had a long boardwalk from... More
