Glorious by day, and spectacular under the stars of night. The city skyline is equally impressive on a sunny day or colorfully lit up at night.

We almost didn't go to manly beach because it was a little out of the way and time was running short. It had been recommended by a friend, so we decided to do it anyway and I'm so glad we did!

This is an excellent beach to learn how to surf on. There are sometimes huge waves, so make sure you know your own capabilities. There are a few rip-tides, but these are clearly marked - keep a watch out. If you feel yourself being pulled out, don't panic and try to swim back to shore, instead swim parallel to the... More

Great shopping, lovely promenade to walk along watching surfers and waves. Lots of places to stay and to eat although we only sampled a couple of cafes the standard was good.

Amazing beach, lots of surfers & most stuff available cheap. The best thing is the view just before reaching the beach when one travels by a cruise. The aquarium on the beach is a good place to visit especially with children. Samosa is available in a small cafe outside the aquarium.
