Fairy Bower Beach is more of a sandbank than a beach, but I thought I’d add it into the mix anyway! Situated along the walkway between Manly Beach and Shelley Beach, this little spot is perfect for snorkelling, scuba diving and paddleboarding!
The tiny sand spot backs onto Cabbage Tree Bay Aquatic Reserve, which aims to conserve marine life and aquatic vegetation. Head out past the rocks and you will find beautiful coral and hundreds of colourful fish and other beautiful marine life! Don’t forget, this is not a fishing spot!
