A suburb that needs to introduction, Manly has evolved from relative unknown to the place to be on Sydney’s north shore for those chasing the beach lifestyle without wanting to escape the hustle and bustle of Sydney’s CBD. With a ferry that connects you to the city in just 30 minutes, Manly and Shelley Beaches to rival the best in the world, and an incomparable restaurant and shopping scene, Manly truly is the hub of coastal life along the Northern Beaches.
South Sydney has Bondi, and the Northside has Manly. Boasting not only a stunning, and now infamous beach, but views of the harbour as well, the shift towards Manly for those seeking a seaside city lifestyle has been immense over the past few years. And with a ferry line directly connecting the hive of activity to Sydney’s CBD, the dreaded commute to work for some becomes a holiday in itself for the Manly locals.
The Corso is Manly’s main hub, lined with restaurants and shops that range from bohemian and alternative right up to high-end couture. It caters to everyone, from the laid back surfer community through to the buzzing executives looking for the perfect home for that ever elusive work-life balance. The restaurant scene along Manly Beach and The Corso is absolutely world-class, with Sunset Sabi, The Herring Room, and Hugos among local favourites.
If you ever tire of the stunning Manly and Shelly beaches and all the waterside activities they have to offer, you can go exploring along the 10km walk from Manly to Spit Bridge, stop by the Four Pines Brewery for a hard-earned craft beer, or enjoy a delicious brunch at The Boat House. No matter your interests, Manly feels a world away and yet ever so close to the Sydney CBD to offer one of the best suburbs in Australia to live its quintessential coastal life
