Manly beach

Manly has a wide and nice beach about 1 km long. The beach gets quite crowded during school holidays, which is from Dec. til early Feb. So if you're up to a lonely beach try one of the further northern beaches.

Shelly beach

A short stroll from Manly beach is Shelly beach, voted as the nicest beach in Sydney. It is small, but sheltered from the waves and the wind, which makes it extremely hot sometimes, but the it's good for swimming and has a BBQ-area and two small restaurants.

The wharf

The best to way to reach Manly is by ferry. Takes about 1/2 h, and is actually a nice way to see Sydney's coast from another view. Once you're at the Manly Warf, follow the the other passengers and you'll easily find the Corso and the main beach.
