The Manly – Spit Coastal Walk [Photo Essay]

, , ,

I have decided do try and complete these Ten Best Coastal Walks in Sydney.

I’ve been here just over a month now, and I can already tell that this is an extremely outdoorsy city.  Every weekend you’ll see people out exercising, chilling at the beach, walking their dogs, and tons of other outdoor activities.  I’m working full-time and don’t want to waste my weekends, so I’m focused on seeing as much of this beautiful city has to offer.

If you haven’t seen my pictures from our last adventure, definitely take a look at my blog post about the Bondi- Coogee Coastal Walk

So for my 2nd Coastal walk, we decided to head check out the Manly – Spit coastal walk.

So Let’s Take a Photographic Journey From Manly Wharf – Spit Brigde Coastal Walk

First Things First — Take the Ferry From Circular Quay to Manly Wharf. 

A must-do for any visitor to Sydney, and will provide amazing views of the Opera House & Harbour Bridge

Depending on the tide, you might have to take a different route.  If you can, try and choose to walk left.  It goes along the beach, and is absolutely gorgeous.

There were actually people here having a party.  They brought big speakers, a BBQ, and tons of booze.  (Ideas for next time).

Congratulations.  You just walked 9-10 KM’s! Now all you gotta do is walk across Spit Bridge, and catch a bus back to Manly or the city.

Hope you enjoyed the photos, as much as I enjoyed taking them.
