This is beautiful Manly, (where I live) on the Northern beaches in Sydney, Australia.
The 2 beaches visible in this photograph are on the Sydney Harbour side and the water on the other side of the stretch of land is the Pacific Ocean.
In between the 2 harbour side beaches is Manly wharf – where the ferry will take you to and fro to Circular Quay (By Sydney Opera House/Sydney Harbour Bridge). The journey is a relaxing half hour ride.
This below image is – the Pacific Ocean side of this photograph
