Address: North Steyne, Manly
After Bondi, this is Sydney's second most popular beach and rightfully so. The beach is well maintained and has a promenade which runs alongside, giving beachgoers easy access. It is patrolled throughout the year and offers visitors lots of options when it comes to summer fun. Spend the day sunbathing, hire a boogie board or surfboard or go for a walk and enjoy some retail therapy at the Corso. Manly Beach is packed with cafes, restaurants and ice cream stores as well as designer clothing shops and on the weekends you will even find a market. Feel like being active? Play some beach volleyball, ride a bike, scooter or skateboard along the promenade.
