Manly to me is a must see when visiting Sydney. I love the ferry ride from Circular Quay; it is wonderful seeing the sights from the water.

Manly has that beach town feel with a long Corso full of shopping and food options. The place is always hopping with surfers, beach goers, families, tourists and even the older set enjoying a walk. The buzz of activity makes Manly the perfect place to people watch from the beach, a park bench or an outdoor cafe.

Every trip I have taken to Sydney has brought a visit or several to Manly. I must admit I do love taking a ferry anywhere but Manly is my favorite ferry ride.

I first brought my wife here in during our 2007 trip (before she was my wife). She loved the beach and the Corso. She said it reminded her of a smaller version of Nice.

Our most recent trips in 2012 brought us to Manly several times; for shopping, for the beach and for lunch. The weather was beautiful; although a bit too chilly for my liking but we had a wonderful time here.

    The ferry sure is the way to go if you have the time to spare to relaxe & enjoy the ride & the sights. I lived in Manly & worked in the city in a past life & really loved passing the gap between Nth & Sth Heads when a big swell was running.
