Beaches

Manly Beach has been named “Best Beach in Australia” on Tripadvisor in 2018 and 2019 and it is not hard to see why. Did you know that Manly has more than 20 beaches, bays, coves and inlets to explore? Each provide their own unique experience and vista with open ocean beaches best for surfing, body surfing or simply enjoying the swell.  Those on the harbour or in protected coves provide a gentler water experience perfect for a swim or paddle board.

Manly and Freshwater Beach are recognised as ‘birthplace of surfing in Australia’ and ranks as a World Surfing Reserve. The reserve incorporates Freshwater Beach and all of Manly – from Queenscliff to North Steyne to Manly and Fairy Bower a 4 kilometre stretch.
