Manly is a suburb on Sydney's Northern Beaches. With both The Corso and the Manly Ferry to thank, this area has become a resort-style hub for both locals and visitors to Sydney alike. Rain, hail or shine - Manly always shines.
Going to the beach; having a kebab for lunch, and an ice cream for dessert go hand in hand here in Manly. Manly Beach is the main beach, and is located right opposite The Corso. There is a smaller beach called Shelly Beach, yet it is still quite a popular beach to its largest neighbour.
