Trip from start to finish was very good. Informative and enough time given in each stop off point. Glad we chose not to do the extra cruise lunch as we enjoyed time spent exploring Manly a little more-gorgeous place, even better than its famous counter part Bondi Beach. Stunning scenery in parts. Driver was the commentator which was great, had... More

It is a nice area to walk around both day and evening. There are lots of little shops and eating places. There is no shortage of coffee,cakes or ice cream.

Don't be fooled when you get off the ferry in Manly to think that Manly beach is that little strip of sand in front of you! (I was ) Walk through the Corso, past all the shops, and there it is - one of the best NSW beaches. On any day you will see Surf Carnivals, Volley Ball Tournaments, Surf... More

I love this beach. It is really beautiful and also exciting if you like surfing. Always something to do, plenty cafes around and really good vibes. I do recommend this beach if you are around Sydney.....

Just a short walk from the ferry through the town you arrive at the beach. It has the wow factor when you first see it, very busy lots of people enjoying themselves. It has a promenade to walk along, a grassed area to have a picnic and plenty of cafes and food of every description in the area. A lovely... More

I personally think that Manly beach is the prettiest beach in Sydney. People rave about Bondi & Marourbra etc but Manly is just idyllic. Definately worth the effort

Spent a leisurely Sunday there, caught the ferry over from Sydney Harbour - was very busy, guess because it was a Sunday, got to the beach and as the day wore on the beach was packed.

Manly beach extends to all above, and is the busiest beach of all the North bays. Parking is chargeable, but very close to the waterside and well groomed sand. Cafes restaurants and surf shops abound, where city life suburbia meets the ocean. The safest part of the beach is on the south, and always bathe between the yellow and red... More

We arrived via ferry from Circular Quay and followed the crowd from the pier to the beach after making a few stops to see the goods in some of the shops. We approached the beach and saw people of all ages sunbathing and playing in the water. This is a great place for a family day trip to the beach... More

I recently made the ferry journey back to Manly. As a teenager I kept my surfboard in a mates shed up the hill in Fairlight. This to me is the best beach in Sydney. Walking the Corso from the Ferry Wharf and arriving to the sight of pumping surf is an awesome spectacle. For tourists with limited time in Sydney... More
