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.

Heaps to do here. Cool walks, swimming is great, ace bars, and very scenic. A great spot and the ferry trip is all part of the experience. Do this once in your life.

We had a family holiday in Sydney and took in Manly Beach via the ferry.
We were blown away by the sand and the beauty of Manly. It blew the beaches in New Calendonia away!! Lucky Sydneysiders.

This beach caters for locals and tourists alike. The tourists tend to gather at the end of the Corso but there is a lovely promenade spanning both north and south where you can wander and find your own space.
Got north to watch beach volleyball and surfers, or south to the surf club and patrolled swimming areas.
Definitely worth a visit.

Even on a chilled winter day this was a cool place to be! Walked the walk......didn't quite surf the surf.....but enjoyed the day all the same....in the heat of the summer I can imagine this is one awesome beach!

Worth visiting when in Sydney. Take the ferry from circular quay. Amazing boat trip and then a short walk to an amazing beach. Totally different to Sydney city centre. Surfers galore. So worth the trip.
