We spent our last here on our most wonderful two week vacation. Great restaurants and relaxing beach. Glad we did it. It was the perfect ending to a wonderful vacation. Strolling the avenue and just relaxing. It is touristy but with it

Took the ferry over from circular quay. Plenty to see on trip over. Lots of restaurants & shops if required. The beach was closed due to weather causing high swells although there were still people in water. Nice sandy beach and enjoyed our stroll around.

We went to Manly Beach for a short visit and to wade in the ocean for a few minutes. It was a nice beach, not too crowded and would have been fine for a day excursion.

Beautiful beach despite unusually rough surf 🏄‍♀️. Surprised not to find chairs or umbrellas available for rent though?

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.
