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!

Relax in your favourite spot and soak up the serenity.

We took the ferry over from Circular Quay which was about a 30 minute ride. After getting off the ferry, it was a short walk through the town to the beach area. The town has lots of little shops and cafes along the way. The beach itself is quite large. A wooden boardwalk runs the length of the beach and goes around the hills for a scenic walk. Many trees line the boardwalk and give needed shade for those wanting to get out of the sun. The boardwalk also has benches, and between the benches and the street are many picnic tables.

The beach was really nice, and we liked it better than Bondi. If I lived here, this is where I would go.

Travelled on the ferry to Manly from circular quay, walked along the CONSO (which I presume meant concourse) and hey presto manly beach. When I went to the beach there was a surfing contest (with people from afar afield as Brazil) and also a skateboarding contest, with, Professional bands playing on the beach. very clean - lots of hire shops.

We had a bunch of people tell us to go to Manly beach while in Sydney and we were so glad we listened! The caught a ferry and headed over. The town is very cute with lots of shops and places to eat! The beach is excellent and has life guards. There are also places to rent beach chairs and umbrella's. We really enjoyed walking the beach and tanning. The waves were great and we were facinated by the surfer's. We had a great day at Manly and I highly recommend a side trip here from Sydney!
