“Family Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

The weather was great and it was a beautiful walk to the beach from the ferry.
The beach was spotlessly clean which is very pleasing to see.
Our only criticism is the number of people. It was packed. But we had a walk in the water and sat near by and watched the water and had coffee. A great experience.

“Worth a trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

The beach is amazing and very well managed by the lifeguards. Clean and huge. A wonderful walk along the promenade with some very interesting shops and cafes. Its super just going over on the ferry which enhances your day out. give it a try you will not be disappointed.

“Don't leave Sydney without going to Manly!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Just half an hour far from the city, catch the Ferry at Circular Quay (less than $15 the round ticket). The journey itself is part of the adventure. The beach is just perfect! Planning to spend the entire day is the best idea so you can walk around the bay, get to the Manly Sanctuary and enjoy any of the many shops and cafés

“Spent a day there, loved the walk up to Cabbage Tree Bay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

It's a lovely walk to Cabbage Tree Bay, and the rock pool is great to swim in, with changing sheds very close

“Fabulous ferry trip and beach area, must visit!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

The Manly Ferry from Circular Quay is something every visitor should do when they are in Sydney. You will get perfect photos of both Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House. The Harbour truly is gorgeous and one of the best attractions Sydney has to offer. It is a great trip and Manly is such a fabulous place to visit. Make sure you do the walk to Shelly Beach as it is well protected and a perfect location to go for a swim. There are some lovely shops, restaurants and bars to watch the world go by until you catch the ferry back. A great day out!
