Favorite thing: Manley beach is one of the many beaches in the Sydney area. It is filled with locals and tourists alike. If you are looking to spend a day at the beach, its a great place to come, if you are looking for some privacy and quiet on the beach...keep looking.
Coogee is a nice little area.
The beach is lovely.
There is a good range of people.
The cafes are great to sit in and chill.
The Rugby union is well worth a watch.
I found the people to be great and it's well worth a visit.
Have a drink near a beach and go back by ferry to Circular Quay
Fondest memory: When I think of Sydney this one sunday evening always crosses my mind. Imagine you're sitting on a nice terrace near the Pacific (near Manly beach), a band plays jazzy music, the sun sets down and you drink a nice Chardonnay with friends. Once it gets dark take the ferry to Circular Quay and just enjoy Sydney's skyline. I had a wonderful time!
Bondi, the most well known Sydney's city beach, is located at the eastern suburb of the city. The beach is roughly 1 km long, enclosed by north and south headlands. Away from the beach there are numerous cafes and restaurants, as well as hostels, hotels, a great variety of shops, and even a small golf course.
Fondest memory: If you're lucky, you may bump into Hollywood's celebrities sun bathing on the beach.
Want to do a short walk to see one of Sydney's finest panoramas? You could do a whole lot worse than go to North Mona Vale and take in the view from the headland - Mona Vale one side, Bilgola the other.
Fondest memory: I was taking a friend's dog up there for a walk and didn't have a lot of time but was suitably impressed by the vista that confronted me. Definitely one of the finer views in Sydney.
The best time would be dawn or early morning if you're interested in photography.
Since its first day as a resort, Manly's catchcry has been "seven miles from Sydney and a thousand miles from care".
Fondest memory: Watching the sea, the surf and the surfers!
Favorite thing: Manly beach in Sydney is one of the citys busiest beaches, i expect it to be even more crowded this summer.
Favorite thing: visit the beaches , make a harbour cruise, take advantage of the excellent ferry-transportations..there is the famous Bondi-beach, but also plenty of hidden beaches
although the beach is quite often plagued by seaweed, if the swell is right, it is a pretty good place for a surf.
failing talent, it can still be enjoyed at sunrise.
