This end of the beach is much quieter and away from the CBD and all the night clubs. The beach is less crowed and less noise at night. The lagoon is also only a short walk from the beech.

It is a side beach of Manly, a local beach near a large playground The Manly Lagoon Reserve. Fun guaranteed for many hours. Take your picnic.

Queenscliff Beach is located at the northern end of Manly. Queenscliff also has a lagoon estuary that empties into the ocean in heavy seas. It is quieter than Manly and... More

I hadn't been to this pool for nearly 50 years but the other day on my first visit, the waves were crashing up against the pool fence and the force was pushing kids into the pool. It was great! You couldn't have paid for a better time.

Went on a sunny day, it was beautiful! Had a lovely morning - great beach and less tourist-y than Bondi.

Yet, another of Sydney's northern beaches...a bus goes from Wynyard in the City to all the northern beaches.

A really friendly little place with the standard beautiful Australian beach. Small shops with good quality produce, quiet residential streets, clean environment and only minutes from Manly for its restaurants and ferry services to Sydney.
