A beautiful calm beach, only a short boat trip away from Bondi the beach is amazing. If you a looking for a calmer but still has waves beach Manly is the place.

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent

The Manly ferry is worth the trip. Come for the day, and have a sunset dinner over the wharf. Bring your swimmers, as the water may still be warm for snorkeling. Recommend bike hire to see more area, in a shorter amount... More

It's beautiful anytime on Manly beach and Shelley beach. Weather should be OK we are still having sunny days and mild temperatures. Ride the ferry over from Circular Quay.
