Why is it so great?

If you are looking to learn something new while having fun — you can also do that. Along the Cabbage Tree Bay Eco-Sculpture Walk, you will come across sculptures that represent the history of the surrounding area.
Also, you can always simply sunbathe and enjoy the serenity of the water. There are a lot of vendors at the beach where you can easily rent an umbrella or a chair. Drinks and food can be found near the beach, so you don’t need to go far for a refreshment.
It would be a pity not to try surfing when coming to this wonderful beach. However, if you are not that adventurous, you can always just watch the more skilled ones.
There is a surfing school for beginners and you can also get the necessary equipment down at the beach. Also, international competitions are held quite often, so you might run into one of them.
Moreover, Manly Beach served as a host for the first world surfing championship.
However, if you are looking for a great place for surfing, visit the Queenscliff at the northern end of the beach. Here you will find great waves that are a result of the submerged reef.
