Essential info

Key facts to know about Manly Beach holiday accommodation

Before you arrive at your holiday accommodation, there are a few key facts you should know. The town of Manly is situated on a small peninsula near Sydney, and Manly Beach comprises virtually the entire east side of it. Because Manly Beach is situated on the Pacific and faces east, you’ll find large crowds in the morning gathering to watch the sun rise over the water. It’s also just a small ferry ride away from Sydney proper, but the sounds of the city won’t be a problem. Sydney proper is easily forgotten as Manly Beach’s isolated location makes it easy to relax and forget about the hustle and bustle of the city and modern life.


Events near Manly Beach holiday homes

When you book your stay at Manly Beach holiday homes, you can enjoy quite a few events depending on when you travel. Should your holiday take place in October, you can enjoy the Manly Jazz Festival, the largest jazz festival in Australia. During this event, you’ll find a collection of outdoor concerts, many of which take place right by the beach.
