Went there by car, reach there already late in the evening, when to the wharf where there is some shopping store, creative handicraft, things is cheaper there, sea breeze is cooling and spend some 1 hour there.

This is another very pleasant coastal walk but a little longer and harder than the Bondi one. It's got more stairs and climb and is occasionally on trails as well as being a fair bit longer if you go from Manly to the spit. Fewer...More

Visited Manly on a bus tour of Sydney. The walkway was lovely, however it was rainy and a surf completion w a s on.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
