Freshwater is the quintessential coastal village and has become increasingly popular in recent years. Situated 2km north of Manly, Freshwater village is 500 metres inland from Freshwater Beach. The village is known for its attractive high street, which features boutique fashion and surf-wear, homewares, cafes, bars, beauticians and bakeries. The unique retail mix, combined with a laid-back atmosphere, beckons barefooted surfers, workers and families alike.
Freshwater is a beautiful beach wedged between two headlands. This is a great beach for families with a terrific rock pool and a nice little playground.
The suburb itself presents a mixture of homes – with apartment blocks, renovated ‘Fishermans’ cottages and luxurious homes making it now one of the most popular places to live on the Northern Beaches.
