The beach should be on your must visit list when you go to Sydney. It's half an hour away from the circular quay by ferry and song 50 mins from darling harbour by ferry. So in case you are living around these harbours, take half...More

The beach is nice enough but did not find the rest of the area to be worth the detour. There are nice cafés and restaurants and some shopping.

A must must must walk. Make a full loop. Stay for sunset, take time to meditate and reunite with yourself.

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

The beauty of Sydney and it’s suburbs, is you can simply walk out of your hotel - and find little communities, neighbourhoods where all the locals are which have great cafes and dining options. It’s safe to say any hotel or... More
