A charming waterfront village with spectacular views of Puget Sound, a public boat dock, bike routes, shopping, and a restaurant.
Manchester, a subdistrict of Port Orchard, is uniquely located between ferries to Bremerton, Vashon Island and Fauntleroy in West Seattle.
Colby, South Colby, Harper and other small communities are found along the same waterfront, south of Port Orchard.
You'll also find Manchester State Park, once used as a harbor defense installation for Bremerton's protection. A torpedo warehouse still remains and is in the "day use" area. Head along the shoreline and look for a path to waterside near the head of Rich Passage. It's one of the best views of ferries in the area.
