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.

“Lovely beach with good views”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

We too the walk from one end of manly beach to the other and enjoyed it. The only reason I haven't gone with 5 starts is that the bit where it joins the street from Manly Ferry is really busy with both people and seagulls. The seagulls are really aggressive and will try to pinch whatever you are eating.

“Perhaps the best beach in Sydney”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

What a great beach this s. better than Bondi as there less effort to get onto the beach and what a great venue. Judging by the evident popularity this is the favored recreational beech in Sydney area!
The surrounding cafe's, restaurants and eateries are all popular and appear to be serving good food! The crowds of obvious locals indicate its popularity! What better recommendation?
