This was another great beach to visit and we could actually walk up from Manly Beach itself. It was a lovely walk, I must confess, and worth it at the end to arrive at such an inspiring beach. My son and I enjoyed it a...More

Queenscliff Beach is located at the northern end of Manly. Queenscliff also has a lagoon estuary that empties into the ocean in heavy seas. It is quieter than Manly and is used mainly by the locals. There is an ocean pool and a tunnel, which...More

Queenscliff Beach is north and an extension of Manly Beach and similar in appearance although Queenscliff is more pleasant with less of the tourist cafes and shops. Well worth the walk.

Walked here from Manly main town. What I found was a totally unexpected surprise. Loved that it seemed like it was an inland river with no indication that the sea was only a couple of hundred metres away. Popular with dog walkers.

This is a beautiful beach just north of Manly. It is on the same stretch of beach as Manly Beach but isn't overrun with tourists. The surf lifesaving club is very popular and on Sunday mornings it can be difficult to find a park nearby...More

This end of the beach is much quieter and away from the CBD and all the night clubs. The beach is less crowed and less noise at night. The lagoon is also only a short walk from the beech.
