Manly Beach Bed & Breakfast - Short Term Executive Apartment & House Rentals
Manly Beach is "seven miles from Sydney and a thousand miles from care" - a quote penned by the Port Jackson and Manly Steamship Company who were in operation from the late 19th and 20th Century.
Manly is everything Australian. Its alive with screeching seagulls, long sandy beaches, small coves, inlets, swaying Norfolk Pines, bikinis and cold icy beer. Festivals, music, flip flops, pink zinc, fish and chips, yachts, boats, divers, fishermen, lifeguards all characterise this idyllic seaside location. Manly features a National Trust Oceanfront Promenade and is easily accessible by ferry or jetcat operating from Circular Quay (city) to Manly Wharf. The short walk up the Corso leads to the ocean beach.
Surrounded by the ocean and harbour on three sides, Manly is unique with its 18 small cove harbour and ocean beaches. It lays peacefully as a peninsula with stunning and breathtaking views. Now a major tourist beach resort with million dollar homes, it has become one of Sydney’s most popular beaches and an international destination for overseas travellers.
Manly is steeped in Australian history. It was discovered by Captain Phillip in 1788 and was named after the 'manly' behaviour of the Cannalgal and Kay-ye-my clan of aborigines who greeted him. The Quarantine Station was built in 1832 to segregate ill passengers on the arriving ships from England. Although Manly is only seven miles north-east from Sydney, it was severed from the city by the harbour until Henry Gilbert Smith brought land in 1853 and introduced the ferry service. Afterwards the the Norfolk Pines along Manly Cove were planted and a small community and village started to flourish.

Manly Beach is about one mile long with a large foreshore and golden sands. The northern end is called Queenscliff Beach which has a lagoon estuary that empties into the ocean. It is quieter than Manly and is used mainly by the locals. There is an ocean pool and a tunnel, which was once chiseled out by local fishermen as a short cut to Freshwater Beach. The centre is called North Steyne Beach and the southern corner, South Steyne. Next to Manly Beach is Cabbage Tree Bay and Shelley Beach.
Cabbage Tree Bay was named after the Cabbage Tree Palm and Shelley Beach is the only west-facing beach on Australia's east coast and is filled with unique marine life such as the Eastern Blue Groper, the Weedy Sea dragon, Gloomy Octopus and Little Penguin. The bay is an ideal spot for scuba diving and snorkeling because of its clear and shallow waters. Shelley Beach is a haven for sun seekers and is a popular sheltered beach, for families and children.
