Pleasant spot to spend a few hours, you get there from Sydney with a ferry which is very convenient. Large beach, clean water, nice walks can be done along.

Absolutely beautiful long sandy beach. Quiet as it is out of season just now, but nevertheless great photo opportunities to be had. Lots of great shops just off the beach, coffee shops and eating establishments!

Hey there, thanks for the review! It's a nice change here in the winter, a lot less people around so can have a more relaxing time here on the beach or just wandering around the area! Cheers, Manly

While the beach can get a little busy at the southern end (South Steyne), Manly beach is great spot to cool off in the summer, with the beach patrolled in three spots - South and North Steyne and Queenscliff.,

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

It's beautiful anytime on Manly beach and Shelley beach. Weather should be OK we are still having sunny days and mild temperatures. Ride the ferry over from Circular Quay.
