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.

“Family Getaway”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

The weather was great and it was a beautiful walk to the beach from the ferry.
The beach was spotlessly clean which is very pleasing to see.
Our only criticism is the number of people. It was packed. But we had a walk in the water and sat near by and watched the water and had coffee. A great experience.

“Don't leave Sydney without going to Manly!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

Just half an hour far from the city, catch the Ferry at Circular Quay (less than $15 the round ticket). The journey itself is part of the adventure. The beach is just perfect! Planning to spend the entire day is the best idea so you can walk around the bay, get to the Manly Sanctuary and enjoy any of the many shops and cafés

“Spent a day there, loved the walk up to Cabbage Tree Bay”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

It's a lovely walk to Cabbage Tree Bay, and the rock pool is great to swim in, with changing sheds very close
