This beach is huge! Now it depends on the day & the weather as to how clean it is, the first day i was there hardly any seaweed and the second there was a bit.

The water at Manly Beach is absolutely gorgeous. But, you can get this kind of water all along the Australian coast. I thought the beach was nice enough, but it was overcrowded and smallish. Most restaurants were off of the beach strip, so you had to cross the street to get food. It also apparently experiences regular rip tides, which... More

This is a fun day outing and a nice way to see where the locals go. Recommend taking the ferry to Manly. Take in the harbor view going and coming. May thru August is a good time to visit Manly. It's off season for the locals so it's not too crowded. Have lunch at one of the restaurants facing the... More

Manly beach is wonderful. We didn't want to leave. We watched surfers and the water was beautiful. This is definately a Do Not Miss beach.

My trip to this beach is unplanned but stayed half day after visiting the Sea life Sanctuary. The walk from Manly wharf to this beach is really wonderful with lively experience of shopping,restaurants & live music and open markets. Went to this place on Anzac day made my day so special with lots of good memories of this area. Beach... More

Got the ferry over from Sydney harbour which takes about 35mins and the ferry terminal is about 10mins walk from the beach. Manly itself is lovely very clean and tidy, lots of tourists as expected (me included) but didn't detract form the place. Got to Manly beach and it is lovely much preferred it to Bondi and a lot less... More

What better place to enjoy a walk, Manly Beach is not just "Manly Beach", to walk from Queenscliff to Shelley Beach (about 4km) you cover it all - "Manly Beach is in the middle. Coffee shops, restaurants, swim, surf, Scater HQ offers roller blades, bikes and much more to hire for some fun along the paths. They are in central... More

This is a beautiful beach - perfect for evening or morning walks and has shade during the day. Shops and cafes close by is an added advantage. The beach has soft sand and is very clean.

Manly Beach. It has it all. Cleaner, longer and MUCH prettier than Bondi and MUCH easier to get to.Just jump on the ferry or fast ferry and you are there in 20 mins from town. One of the highest density areas for bars and restaurants in Sydney. Amazing choice of food and, with so much competition, places that are not... More

The walk along the ocean beach front is fantastic. Lined with giant Norfolk pine trees. Manly beach has life guard patrols all year around at the southern end with 2 extra patrolled areas during summer making it excelent for a family swim in the waves! So many exciting restaurants and pubs to suit all budgets.
