Shelly Beach Manly
#3 of 32 Outdoor Activities in Manly
Match: Beaches
Such a beautiful little area! if you are visiting the northern beaches/Manly you MUST walk to shelly beach! in the summer you can catch whale/dolphins in the bay and it has a yummy restaurant there too!
The snorkelling is good, and the calm sea provides a welcome change from the surfing waves of many Sydney beaches (which are great fun but nice to have a bit of calm).

Bronte Beach Bronte

Match: Beaches
This is the perfect example of what Sydney means to me: roughly hewn sandstone, glittering clear waters, dramatic cliffs and beaches.
A more family friendly beach compared to the busier more touristy beaches, the next beach along from Tamarama on the Bondi to Coogee coastal walk.

The beach at Tamarama is a sight to behold, like most of Sydney's costal path beaches it's simply stunning and home to the famous Tamarama Sailing Club established way back in 1906.

He’s well travelled and has been to loads of beaches throughout Asia, Europe etc, but a simple trip down to Maroubra beach on a nice day is really one of the best things one can enjoy anywhere.

Match: Beaches
Different from typical Sydney beaches such as Bondi and Coogee, Clovelly can offer you reefs, snorkelling, and much beautiful scenes to watch and enjoy.
Clovelly's a strange beach, quite unlike Sydney's wide open surf beaches.

Restaurants and cafes provide a fantastic array of cheap, casual and informal dining.Can also be reached by train and a pleasant walk through the main street on the way to the beaches here is well spent and easy.
