Just 15 minutes walk from the ferry wharf is little manly beach. Very quiet right next to town. Good swimming beach. Has a smalll coffee shop. Free bus back to wharf, left 2 time each hour. Bus times were possessed. Have fun.

Love spending time here. Either get the bus from the city taking you through lovely suburbs, or a ferry trip from the wharf. Always plenty to choose from. Ferry trip alone worthwhile. Take time out - and enjoy!!

Lovely, small sandy beach. Clear water with a protection pen if you feel you need it! Handy cafe and changing facilities.

Was staying in Manly and enjoyed a quick dip at Little Manly - nicely sheltered, trees nearby and so accessible to the shops and accommodation.
