Within walking distance of the ferry and ice cream stores lining the sea side. This beach is clean and clear if not a little crowded.

There are plenty of restaurants around if you wish and the beach is very close to the ferry terminal, a very efficient service.

We didn't spend enough time in Manly and especially the beach. It is very clean, has great waves and has a real family atmosphere. There were plenty of surfers the day we went and a lot of families walking and carrying small children,

It is certainly worth a trip to Manly, busy and bustling and fun. The beach is busy but pleasant. Swimming was off as a shark had been seen in the area disappointing all the surfers and swimmers. Life guards on duty ensured safety.

Every time we visit Sydney we always take the time to catch a ferry to Manly Beach. The beach is very pretty and has plenty of restaurants close by.

Another lovely sydney beach, where restaurants are close by, toilets are close by. There are loads of seating and places to have a picnic. And a place that is inundated with people. Personally it's one of my favourite beaches in Sydney. But people have different opinions as to what defines their favourite beach. You can walk down from this beach... More
