Definitely my favorite beach in the Sydney are. The waves are big enough for surfing but not to big for everyone, including small children, to go swimming. It's right across from the corso, so there's easy access to all of Manly's cafes, ice cream shops, stores, etc. There's surfing lessons, volleyball clinics, and the manly life saving club. There's also... More

Manly Beach is a lovely destination - with lots of markets and small shops to visit. The coffee shops and eateries are abundant. It offers a relaxed feel away from the buzz of the heart of Sydney.

This is really a must visit. Outside Bondi, I think it's the most well known. The beach is great but so is the entire area. There are great walks, as there are all over Sydney and the Northern Beaches. There are much more quiet and local attended beaches a short walk to the north and south. Even at high tide,... More

If you want to experience the locals habits and like surfing or taking some time with in a wonderful place, this is the visiting you must do. It is very easy to access the Manly Beach from Sydney Downtown using ferry. Place full of locals and ideal for surfing. Take your time to relax there in a full day.

Manly is in my opinion the best large beach in Sydney (Better than Bondi)and the area is serviced from the City of Sydney by a great ferry service and this alone is a scenic trip to your destination, the beach is more family friendly than most. My only negative is late at night/early morning when the pubs close and many... More

Pretty beach with nice ambiance. You may encounter surfers. There is a trail near the beach and you can choose between a short walk with nice views of the ocean and Manly or a 5 hour hike.

When arriving go directly across the road to the Corso which is like a very wide mall but very relaxed plenty of food shops and a great bakery

Staying in Manly

Neighborhood Profile
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.
