This has to be our all-time favourite spot. Simply pull up right to the ferry wharf, drop an anchor and swim in. The vibe here is amazing – with a mix of families, couples, tourists and kids all sharing the waterfront together. You can hire a paddleboard, watch the parasailing, or if you’d like a bite to eat – there are more than enough options ashore from convenience stores and take-away fast food to cafes, bars and restaurants. You will be the envy of the Manly Wharf Hotel onlookers as you soak up the atmosphere from your own boat, floating around on inflatable toys. Always be mindful of the ferry, as it frequents every half hour and you’ll be sure to cross paths with it at some point on your trip.
