Address: North Steyne, Manly

After Bondi, Manly Beach is the second most popular beach in Sydney and rightfully so. A stunning spot, not only for tourists, but also for families.

Manly Beach is divided into three sections – South Steyne, North Steyne and Queenscliff. Each section has its own surf life saving club and patrolled swimming area.

Between north and south Steyne, the beach has several volleyball courts, which are used for summer beach volleyball competitions and clinics.

Right above the beach is a promenade which runs from one end of the beach to the other and is popular for walking, bike riding and skating. You will also find several small playgrounds along the way and a large enclosed and sheltered playground at the end of Queenscliff beach. On a hot summer day, enjoy a picnic on the tree lined foreshore, which is shaded, has large grassy areas and some tables and benches.

The best way to get to Manly is by ferry from Circular Quay. When you arrive at Manly Wharf, you can either stay at Manly Cove Beach, a family friendly beach without waves or walk through the Corso to Manly Surf Beach.

The Corso is Manly’s shopping and restaurant/café hub, so whether you need to pick up sunscreen, coffee or a new dress, you will find plenty to choose from.

If you decide to stay at Manly Cove, you can hire a canoe or kayak at the southern end, visit Manly Sea Life Park (previously known as Manly Aquarium) or let your kids have some fun at Manly Water Works, located just behind the aquarium.

For those driving to Manly, there are several council car parks which offer 2 hour free parking, but beyond that, the hourly rate is quite high. Some Manly side streets have up to 4 hours parking, but you need to get there early to find a spot. Alternatively you can park at Manly Beach, but that can also be costly.

Manly has plenty of ice cream stores to choose from – Ben & Jerry’s, Yoghurtland, Gelatissimo, Cold Rock, Movenpick, Royal Copenhagen and others.

On the weekend, you will find markets which sell beautiful jewellery, clothing, pictures, souvenirs and homewares. The markets are located near Manly Surf Beach.

During summer you can hire boogie boards, surfboards, beach umbrellas and chairs, so if you are travelling by public transport, equipment hire is a great option.

Manly Beach is ideal for surfing and if you or your kids have never done it before, you can book a surfing lesson with Manly Surf School.

Whether you have young or older children Manly Beach has a lot to offer families. There is plenty to see, do and experience, so why not plan a trip there this weekend.
