Family activities, Manly Beach

Manly is the perfect Sydney beach for the whole family. There is sheltered swimming in a netted ocean pool, an aquarium filled with creatures of the deep, great fish and chips and plenty of ice-cream shops.

About Manly

Nestled between a tranquil inner-harbour beach on one side and a popular Pacific Ocean surf beach on the other, Manly combines a laid-back attitude with a sophisticated dining scene and stylish shopping.

The palm-tree lined Corso leads you onto the Steyne promenade, where you can walk, roller-blade or cycle from Manly Beach to Freshwater Beach. Hire a bike, or head to Manly SEALIFE Sanctuary with the kids, enjoy casual dining and a ghost tour at Q Station or join a social game of beach volleyball on a Sunday afternoon.

You'll find a wide variety of accommodation to suit your needs, from plush hotels, homely bed and breakfasts to apartment options.
