Manly Buyers Agent

Manly is the most well known and vibrant suburb on the Northern Beaches. It is notable for its beaches which are popular tourist destinations. Manly features a long stretch of sand on the ocean side, that runs from Queenscliff through North Steyne to South Steyne . This is followed by rock pools and sandy beaches called Fairy Bower and Shelly Beach. There are also a number of beaches on the harbour side of the peninsula. Norfolk Island pine trees are symbolic of Manly and are a prominent feature of both the ocean and harbour beaches.

There are many restaurants, cafes, shops and amenities in the Corso, Steyne, Esplanade and surrounding streets. The famous Manly Pier has ferries with access to the city and Eastern Suburbs.

Manly has a mix of residential housing that includes modern and Federation houses and a mixture of unit blocks ranging from modern to 1960/70’s and also art deco buildings. The premium areas for houses tend to be on the Eastern Hill in Bower St, Osborne Rd and the surrounding streets, and for units is North & South Steyne and East & West Esplanade.
