Long ago, when it was an excursion destination for those in top hats and hoop skirts, Manly was billed as “seven miles from Sydney, a thousand miles from care.” Despite the fact that Australians use the metric system, the slogan is entirely accurate. The beach mecca attracts surfers, travelers and anyone who’s willing to take a 30-minute ferry ride to get to work in the CBD (central business district), with cracking waves, a great beach volleyball culture and restaurants that give the city a run for its money.
