“Turn Right at Manly and head for Shelley Beach”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

A Lovely coastal path following the surfers on Manly Beach and passing some lovely little cafes on the way to Shelley Beach. This is a lovely small beach to swim on and two very good cafes there. Good for families

“Worth taking the walk”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

once you get to manly, might as well walk to shelly beach. there are nice sculptures along the walk. if you want to relax with good view on a sunny day, you can sit on one of the rocks and look out

“A nice way to spend a couple of hours in the sun.”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

As you leave the Ferry Berth at Manly, walk across the road and go down The Corso, the beach is on the opposite end of the Corso.

As you arrive at the beach if you turn right and walk along the Marine Parade to Shelley Beach. This is worth a look. We are not beach people but the walk and views are terrific. Towards Shelley Beach you will spot many steel statues and models set in the rocks. Some of these are quite novel.

The sea views are brilliant. Play spot the most expensive house as you walk along.

Along the walk you will often see the lizards sunning themselves. We found they were especially partial to grapes..

“Really beautiful walk”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

Unexpected beauty and nature in the middle of Sydney. Take a snack and your swim suit and set aside a whole day so that you can bathe at the small beaches on the way

“A place to live at”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

For as Manly was absolutely marvelous.
Beautiful surroundings, nice buildings and although so close to Sydney, so far away from any kind of hectic and big city stress.
