Manly has got everything on offer. It is easily accessed by ferry, bus or car. There is lots to do here - from the shop to the beach volleyball nets, that are free to use! Not to mention the amazing restaurants and cafe around.

Excellent day out. Plenty to see and do. Enjoy a surf or paddle board (available for hire), plenty of shopping and eating options. Beautiful place.

Manly beach is a must see top sight when visiting Sydney. Don't bother with Bondi unless you really must ride a wave. Manly has a beautiful community, excellent little town and beautiful restaurants cafés and bars. Eat at Bluewater for sure.

Manly was a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon. It is a small beach town with little shops and restaurants. Felt a lot like the beach towns in Southern California (Manhattan Beach). Have a little walk after brekky or lunch on the path and look for sign to the car park, cross it and you see a not-well-marked trail... More

It was April when we went to Manly Beach and when we arrived , it was a bit windy and not warm enough to stay on the beach for long. However it was very sunny and we decided to hire bicycles and we had an amazing day. The guy in the shop told us a route to take and we... More

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.
