The next instalment in my beach series – Manly Beach is not only one of the most famous beaches in Sydney, it is also among my favourites.
The beach itself comprises three areas, each with it’s own surf club – running south to north: Manly, North Steyne and Queenscliff.
I’ve been a member of Manly Life Saving Club for more than 15 years and spent many years doing surf patrols and competing in surf life saving carnivals with the club.
The beach is always alive with people surfing, sun baking or exercising on the corso that runs along it’s length. In about a week’s time the beach will also play host to the Hurley Australian Open of Surfing.
The pictures below are taken in the southern corner, with the Manly Life Saving Club in the corner of the beach.
