Manly is Sydney’s other internationally renowned beach, but it’s also one of the longest. From north to south, it comprises Queenscliff, plus the North Steyne and South Steyne curve which hosted the world's first surfing competition in 1964. To this day, it’s not uncommon to see surfers of every skill enjoying the perfect conditions.
But if the beach itself wasn’t iconic enough, the spectacular Ferry Ride from Circular Quay ranks high as one of the most “Sydney” experiences. It drops you right at the Manly Wharf, which doubles as a hospitality hub featuring waterfront restaurants such as Queen Chow and Hugo’s. From there, it’s a short walk down the Manly Corso – a vibrant promenade with fountains, cafes and surf shops – before you hit the sand and surf.
