The suburban Sydney beach has a long history with the sport and is considered the birthplace of modern surfing, but don't worry if you don't know the difference between a pump or a cutback; experts will be on hand to teach newbie lessons.
Even Qantas is getting in on the fun with packages from LA to Sydney with more than just the beach on the agenda. For $2,339, fans can cross the Pacific, have five nights of accommodation, three days of a Sydney Harbour hop-on, hop-off pass, return ferry tickets to Manly Beach and entry to the iconic Taronga Zoo. For more info, head on over to the Red Roo's website.
One little tip: the mayor of Manly Beach, Jean Hay, encourages guys to “BE MANLY” because females outnumber males in Manly Beach! And just remember, February is one of the hottest months down under, so pack light and prepare to show skin.
