Owner description: SHOP .....in the sunshine with over 200 stores to explore. Discover funky boutiques in hidden lane ways, wander through the weekend outdoor markets or splurge on a whole new wardrobe on The Corso. At every turn, it's sheer shopping pleasure to satisfy everyone. TASTE .....an amazing array of flavours in over 100 cafes, restaurants, bars and eateries. Whether it's a lingering lunch of classy dining, a sumptuous seafood selection for dinner, fast and fresh takeaway or a walk along the beach front with an ice cream in hand. Any time of day or night, you'll find a taste to tempt. LIVE .....life and discover your hidden talents. Get active with surfing, sailing, scuba diving... and everything in between! Take a dip at the beach, or try your hand at beach volleyball. And when relaxation is on the agenda, treat yourself to a hotel stay or enjoy some pampering at one of our many salons. The perfect place for adventure or to relax and explore. FEEL ..... the sand between your toes after a long day at work. Absorb the geography and the nature that makes Manly special. Nestled between the harbour and the ocean, over 40 beaches and walkways give an escape to the daily grind. Just cast out a fishing line, pack a picnic basket, or bask in the sun. Relax in your favourite spot and soak up the serenity.

“Manly is lovely”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Love the ferry trip there and back... There are a couple of pubs near the surf beach which serve good, reasonably priced food, no need of hungry jacks here. Adriano Zumbo has an outlet just off the Corso, a delicious treat if you feel like it. Movenpick has the nicest ice creams, try the rhubarb, it is divine. Lovely just to sit on one of the benches facing the surf beach and watch the world go by with a takeaway coffee or an ice cream on a nice day. A great place to take the kids, or even a solo trip....

“Beach Therapy at its Finest”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

If you enjoy beach culture and what any beach has to offer this is the place for you. Beautiful scenery, warm water with great waves, lots of shopping and places to eat, and best of all the most interesting people to meet and talk to.

“This is Paradise!”
Reviewed 20 April 2012

I wish I could stay longer. I've been in many beaches, in Hawaii, in Brazil, Caribbean... Manly has something special, maybe the calm and clear water, maybe that pool alongside the ocean, maybe the walk between the ferry and the beach.
