This is one of those spots that only locals seem to enjoy.
Most visitors to Manly get off the Ferry, head through the Corso straight to South Steyne Beach, some turn right to walk to Shelly Beach. If you head left though, you might get some peace and quiet.
Walk along the beachfront past North Steyne & Queenscliff Surf Life Savings Clubs and walk under the bridge to the left - it’s only about a 10 minute walk from the Corso.
This is a great spot for a picnic, to exercise your dogs, a large playground for the kids, enjoy the free exercise equipment or just a nice walk along the lagoon.
