Owner description: SHOP .....in the sunshine with over 200 stores to explore. Discover funky boutiques in hidden lane ways, wander through the weekend outdoor markets or splurge on a whole new wardrobe on The Corso. At every turn, it's sheer shopping pleasure to satisfy everyone. TASTE .....an amazing array of flavours in over 100 cafes, restaurants, bars and eateries. Whether it's a lingering lunch of classy dining, a sumptuous seafood selection for dinner, fast and fresh takeaway or a walk along the beach front with an ice cream in hand. Any time of day or night, you'll find a taste to tempt. LIVE .....life and discover your hidden talents. Get active with surfing, sailing, scuba diving... and everything in between! Take a dip at the beach, or try your hand at beach volleyball. And when relaxation is on the agenda, treat yourself to a hotel stay or enjoy some pampering at one of our many salons. The perfect place for adventure or to relax and explore. FEEL ..... the sand between your toes after a long day at work. Absorb the geography and the nature that makes Manly special. Nestled between the harbour and the ocean, over 40 beaches and walkways give an escape to the daily grind. Just cast out a fishing line, pack a picnic basket, or bask in the sun. Relax in your favourite spot and soak up the serenity.

....unless you want to swim or surf of course. We chose the sitting and looking option, and enjoyed people-watching. Beach clean, ample room for all and well patrolled by life-guards. Cafes and shops nearby

In my opinion Manly Beach is much nicer than Bondi Beach. People think they are similar. But i reckon Manly Beach is not as busy as Bondi Beach. But still busy enough not be bored. There are more locals and not as many tourists as at Bondi Beach.

We chose to walk around away from the main beach. Was very nice, great beach bars too. Fantastic attitude to drinking, could only purchase alcohol with food and had to be consumed in bar not on the beach.

Only downside is that dispite the generous and well signposted bins it could be a bit cleaner.

A short walk from the Ferry down the Corso and you see a 3-4 kilometre golden beach lined with Norfolk Island Pines. Plenty of seats, walks and swimming areas. Walk to Shelly beach and see crystal clear water and another pretty beach. A lovely day out!
