"Beautiful beach, but frenetic location..."

North Steyne may be considered by some to be the premier street in Manly. It fronts the wide sweep of Manly Beach – and is a constant hub of activity. The attractions are obviously many, the beach being one of the prime Sydney Beaches.

The properties along North Steyne are all apartment blocks (and hotels) of varying degrees of size and luxury, although there are still some that are older, un-renovated red brick buildings. Most of the more modern and sophisticated blocks offer apartments with deep balconies offering wonderful ocean views. The higher the apartment, the better, in my opinion, not only for the views, but also to escape the noise of constantly flowing traffic below.

Manly Beach itself has a SLSC, change facilities, picnic benches in wide grassy areas, and a children’s playground. There are often numerous activities, such as street performers, markets, and beach ‘boot camp’ happening, so there is always something to do. There are plentiful cafes, bars and restaurants on both the Steyne and surrounding streets. For shopping there is the Corso (which is also home to the infamous Steyne Hotel), and many small specialty stores.

Public transport is good with the ferries and buses and there are choices of nearby schools. Manly is busy suburb and tourist destination and The Steyne and the Corso are often over-crowded.
