Manly beach, Sydney-An express getaway

Manly beach is a nice beach off the Sydney city limits, reached via Ferry. I paid a short visit on my day of arrival in Sydney, on recommendation from my hosts.

The approach to Manly beach was very scenic- like this two giant rocks opening up. If you have the time you can walk till the edge, known as North Edge.

Manly itself can take one full day to explore. I could spend only few hours here.

Reaching Manly takes about 30 minutes one way by ferry, from Circular Quay

Hi Shrinidhi , Enchanting shades of Blue ... captured in pics n words. I would like to visit Manly beach for Samosa at Ashiana. Not really but that's what I really crave for anywhere out of Mumbai.

Looks like there was a lot to do on the beach. The last two pics have lovely light!

I really liked that art piece in that square. I don't know why but I just really like industrial art like that.

Especially when the kids can climb on and interact with it. Makes it so much more part of the area.

Thanks Mridula and Sujata
