After taking a leisurely ferry ride walk down the main mall past all the shops. Make sure you visit the market which is temporarily located because of work to the mall. Had great drinks and snacks at the corner hotel styne. Took the fast ferry back at only $1 more but half the time.

For a Manly Beach, there sure a lot of women there too. This is one of the most famous beaches in the Sydney area and if you go on a holiday or weekend you will find out how crowded it can be. The beach itself has plenty of room but parking is difficult even on a less busy day. Manly... More

If you stay in Sydney is brief Manly beach is ideal as it is easily accessible by ferry (more so than Bondi beach).The ferry terminal is roughly a five minute walk. The restaurants along the esplanade cater to all budgets with a mix of chain and high end restaurants.

... because it has amazing views and many people are here surfing even during the winter. Very good coastal walks close by too. I could of sat here for hours just listening to the crashing waves. The trip here by ferry from the harbour is excellent. 45 minutes with great views of the harbour bridge and opera house.

The beach side of Manly offers so much....strolls/cycling/skateboarding along the promenade, a surf beach or a quiet dip up the southern end near the lifeguards. A walk around to Fairy Bower and then further along to Shelly Beach for a dip. Plenty of places to eat looking out towards the beach. A great places to spend a day. The harbour... More

Staying in Manly

Neighborhood Profile
Manly
A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is a great way to experience Sydney Harbor Bay and the Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants as well, especially along the family-oriented areas like Shelly Beach. An excellent way to experience Manly is to rent a bike and explore the dedicated bike paths and off road trails. The North Head National Park is another must-see. Located on the southern tip of Manly, North Head National Park offers great bushwalks and panoramic views of the city.
