A nice walk but only went to the right of the beach. It was not as long as I had imagined and very crowded. There is a cute restaurant at the end of the walk. Perhaps it goes farther in the other direction?

Manly Beach walkway was a cool walk. It threaded its way around the beach area. Lots of people were running on the path and went a long way around the cove. Lots of people on it!!!!!!!

Worth doing by this got the exercise but there are long stretches of fairly disinteresting vista. It does take you away from the bustle of Manly.

This walkway took us around 3 hours. It gives an average of around 4hours but I was with a speedy walker. Make sure to wear comfortable clothes and shoes as the pathway changes from gravel, sand, wood, grass to rocks..... it can be a challenge...More

This was a bit of a challenge at times - very up and down but well worth it . Perhaps the most beautiful walk I have ever been on as it is so varied. If you want to go back to the city by bus...More

A 40-minute ferry ride from Circular Quay will take
you to the famous northern beach of Manly. The beaches
here are perfect for learning to surf or spending the
day sun-tanning. The walk from Spit Bridge to Manly is
a great way to experience Sydney Harbour Bay and the
Australian bush land. Along the foreshore, there are
plenty of watering holes and wine bars with excellent
cuisine. There are plenty of kid-friendly restaurants
