“Fantastic views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

This has got to be one of the most beautiful coastal walks in Australia . Catch a ferry from circular quay to manly and then follow the coastal walk for approximately 10kms to the spit where there are Lots of restaurants to enjoy a meal and well deserved drink. Or just take a picnic and enjoy it along the way. Buses run regularly from the spit bridge back to the city.

“Pleasant end to a tourist's day”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

After a day of walking around Sydney, we (in our 60s) decided to take a later afternoon ferry to Manly to enjoy the sunset there. Although a tourist center, Manly was a wonderful calming break from the hubbub of the city. The walk along a most beautiful beach, last minute window shopping in the square, a bite to eat at Hungry Jack (America's Burger King in disguise, we believe), and the cooling ferry ride back to Sydney were a welcome end to a wonderful day.

“A relaxing Walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

A scenic walk starts when you walk off the ferry at manly wharf and past the sea-life aquarium. Stroll along the coast on the nice paved-way and observe the people fishing, playing in the water and even having a wedding ceremony.

“A tough but good walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We took the length that walked over the headland from the beach. Going through lengths of vegetation, getting slightly lost but looking over the harbour made this worth the effort. Take plenty of water!

Stunning walk.... the views are awesome.. DO THIS..... you will not regret it...not too strenuous.... the secret is to have 2 cars... park one at Manly.. then go back to the Spit.... walk to Manly and drive back to the other car......
