Forty Baskets Beach – Manly Australia
Forty Baskets Beach is one of Manly’s best kept secrets and is a great thing to do in and around Manly just off the beaten track. Set in the protective landscape of Manly Cove, Forty Baskets Beach is a beautiful little enclave in North Harbour. Offering beautiful views, gentle waters and shaded grass areas – perfect for a peaceful day by the water and ideal for young children.
Forty Baskets Beach is an east facing narrow grassed area on undulating terrain and sandy beach. This is not a wheelchair accessible facility due to one access route from Gourlay Ave. with relatively steep slope and the unsealed path in the park.
Local cafe 40 Beans is the ideal place to refuel.
This beach is on the Manly to Spit scenic walk.
Forty Baskets Beach is accessible via Gourlay Ave, Balgowlah – a western suburb of the Manly LGA. To view the Manly Map click here.
