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.

Being a Brazilian, I have seen beaches. Manly beach is not extraordinary, except for the small ocean pool on the north side of the beach, near Farm Cove. But there are pools like that in Bondi and Bronte also, so nothing special.

Did this trip twice on the Ferry on our recent stay in Sydney. The beach was lovely and nice to walk along the shore front. Plenty of shops and cafes to potter around in.

Golden sandy beach. Lots of restaurants a stones throw from the beach - prefer Manly to Bondi!
Defintely worth a visit.

Lots of little cafes & restaurants & shops, lovely to sit & watch the surfers catching a wave or a walk along the boardwalk, great little walk to the right around the cliff to a cute little beach with a lovely restaurant called 'The Kiosk" sit outside under the umbrella's or inside, wonderful food,.great water view.

I always love to go there for fresh air and walk around the coastline. There's a lot to do, like going to the Aquarium, or have lunch in the marina, or browse around the Flea market. This place is a tourist attraction.
