This place has everything...hiking the Sydney National Park...overlooking cliffs to the ocean. Watching people surf and play volleyball. Shopping in the little shops; eating great seafood and the best gelatto around.

“great place away from city”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

I took the ferry from circular quay to manly which takes 30 mins.
It is a nice cruise passing through the bridge and opera house so you can take good photos.
there're many good restaurants around manly beach too.
it's a good place to go and enjoy the sea breeze.

“Disappointed looking run down”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

Caught the manly ferry from circular quay which is a must - but manly ipad not visited for about 5 years, looked run down and lots of homeless people. Beach was a bit dirty and shops looked run down. I stayed about 2 hours and got back on ferry to Sydney, beach was ok for swim but I did not feel safe leaving my things on beach so stayed close by.

“Fantastic beach”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

The Manly beach is great. It is near the shops and cafes and is long and clean. Everything you want from a beach. We were staying in Manly so it was handy but still worth a visit and only a short walk from the ferry.
