We travel to Manly, several times a year as we love the feel of the place. Beautiful surfing beach, great cafes & shopping. We always stay at either Novotel or The Sebel & are happy with both, especially the Sebel. Easy walk to catch the ferry if you want to go over to Sydney.

Even if I do a weekend trip to sydney I will squeeze in time to hop on the ferry to Manly Beach. The ferry ride is fabulous u get great views of the bridge and the oph for photo ops. The beach is bigger and more beautiful than bondi and plenty of shops and markets to explore.

Take the ferry from Circular Quay and enjoy the ride to Manly Beach. Once you are there, in addition to a wonderfully huge beach, there are great places to eat and shop.

Rode the SpeedFerry from Sydney to Manly Harbor and enjoyed every minute of it on the way. Manly was all welcoming the moment we stepped on the wharf, till we returned. It was a Saturday eve so the mood among tourists was livelier than usual, and the Whitney Houston’s songs blaring through loudspeakers made the already happy moods happier. Loved the walk from Harbor onto the beach, and alongside the embankment. It's almost like committing a sin if you visit Manly beach but don't try Fish & Chips. Thank god we didn't fall into sinners category. The views are stunning, stroll a blessing, environment grandeur, and the sunset just breathtaking!

We ❤️ Manly.
The ferry drops you off in a great location and we walked along the Corso to the beach. WOW!
We could’ve stayed right there forever, not too busy at this time and there were families, couples, groups of people all doing their own thing, having a real cool time.
There are some great looking pie shops and restaurants in the area we were in and the architecture was awesome, a real mixture of new and old.
Love this place.

With the Ferry the trip is extremely enjoyable. Expect rough seas for the last part of the trip.Walk to the Beach and back to the terminal.

This was my first trip to Manly. Getting across from the city was so easy and nice on the Manly ferry with beautiful views of North Head. The beaches are just beautiful. Heaps of places to swim and the beaches are well patrolled. We had a swim at Shelly Beach and Collins Flat, both were fabulous.
