Manly Beach Tours

star-5
36 Reviews
Manly Beach
The lively suburb of Manly is one of Sydney’s most vibrant seaside areas and a popular destination for surfers from across the globe. Visit Manly Beach to enjoy the golden sand, catch world-class waves, and shop and eat along the lively Corso promenade, which is lined with cafes and restaurants. 

The Basics  
Visit Manly Beach to relax in the sun, take a surf lesson, go paddleboarding, or even learn to scuba dive. The area is a stop on some Sydney Harbour cruises, including hop-on hop-off cruises, which allow you plenty of time to explore the area and its attractions. Alternatively, opt for a snorkeling or hiking tour that takes you to Manly as well as to Palm Beach and Chase National Park.

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • There are public restrooms at the beach, as well as places to rent beach chairs and umbrellas, wetsuits, lockers, and surfboards. 
  • There are plenty of cafes, restaurants, and bars around the beach. 
  • Manly Beach is accessible for wheelchair users; call Manly Life Saving Club ahead of time to request the use of a specially-designed beach wheelchair.  

How to Get There 
The most scenic way to reach Manly is to take the public ferry from Circular Quays in Sydney; the ride takes 30 minutes, you can enjoy unobstructed views of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge from the top deck. Once you arrive at the Manly port, walk along the lively Corso promenade to reach Manly Beach. 

When to Get There 
Summer in Sydney—which falls in the months of December, January, and February—brings blue skies and hot yet comfortable temperatures, making it the best time to visit Manly Beach. To beat the crowds, try to visit before the local school summer vacation starts. 

Sydney’s Secret Coastal Walk 
Sydney’s cliff-top Coogee to Bondi coastal walk is the best known path along the waterfront, but visitors looking for a day outdoors should also consider the lesser-known coastal path that connects Manly Beach to Spit Bridge. This 6-mile (10-kilometer) coastal path takes you through rugged terrain and passes the clear waters of Sydney’s secluded northern beaches.
Address: The Corso, Sydney 2095, Australia
