Manly Beach, Sydney, Australia

Manly Beach is a pretty good option if you want to avoid the teeming crowd of Bondi Beach. It’s a quick lovely cruise from Sydney dock towards the city, and you’ll get spectacular views of the Opera House, Darling Harbour and the beautiful coasts.

30771_1180788060172_2987244_nThe trip from the main ferry terminal, Circular Quay is a breeze… and the Manly ferry drop-off is an easy walk towards the beach. Having a leisure walk  around will lead you to streets bursting with cafes, fish n chips stores, food stalls, souvenir shops, hotels and apartments facing the beach. It actually feels California…with palm trees on the boulevards.

The golden sand, clean beach and rolling waves… enough reasons for surfers to flux in here with the beachgoers. In our time, the water was cold so we just grabbed a snack, sat on the beachfront, enjoyed the scenery and waited for sundown.

30771_1180779299953_2184631_nThe promenade is also clad with different restaurants, so you’ll dine with magnificent views. It’s just a tiny cove, sitting so close to Sydney’s harbour. Perfect place to just chill out on a free day.

30771_1180778939944_572418_nThe daytrip became such a lovely cruise at the humble, little Manly with picturesque captures of the busy Sydney.

Include Manly Beach in your Sydney itinerary, looking at the photos when you’re already back home, won’t fail to make you smile.
