Walkers will find Manly's tourist attractions easily reachable on foot, thanks to its compact size. A large array of shopping and dining experiences cluster along The Corso, and this main strip also connects to all of the major marine activities on Manly's numerous beaches, including kayaking, surfing, and scuba diving.
