Manly is perhaps one of the most popular beaches among tourists and locals due to the scenic ferry ride from Circular Quay. When alighting from the ferry, you will find yourself in a hub of restaurants, the Bavarian Bier Cafe being one of the local favourites. I recommend recharging yourself at the Bier Cafe after a swim before you head off on the ferry back to the CBD. Living up to it's name, there's a large selection of beers, from German Löwenbräu and Hoftbräu Dunkel to even low carb options like Hattori Hit Girl and for those with a sweet tooth, there are beer cocktails such as Mango Weissbier. For food, there are beachy classics such as Fish & Chips, and traditional German dishes such as Wiener Schnitzel, Pretzels and Crackling Pork Belly.
