Destination description "Manly"

Little town really lively. Manly offers a nice cultural blend with many international travelers and a local population which lives "7 miles far from Sydney but a thousand miles from care!".
Manly beach is certainly one of the most packed of Sydney, because of its fame, its large variety of breaks, and the large range of surf shops.

The Corso, the main street, offers events all year long and attracts the crowds, that enjoy food and drinks, shopping and the numerous musicians in the street.

Manly is the right destination for those who want to remain really close from Sydney, but want to have good surfing and quality of life. It's a great compromise with a dynamic population, good bars, decent waves, and the opportunity to reach the northern beaches easily.
