Glenelg Beach is Adelaide’s most popular city beach, offering a buzzing vibe and great atmosphere for all to enjoy. Renowned for its wide beach, stunning sunsets, rich heritage, charming hotels and bustling shops, sidewalk cafés and loads of entertainment.
Take a dip, stroll the jetty, grab a bite to eat and watch the sun set over the ocean. No trip to the beach is complete without an ice-cream or gelati – or two – and you’ll find plenty of opportunities to treat yourself at Glenelg. The Glenelg Foreshore playground are hives of activity throughout the summer months, offering a huge range of family-friendly entertainment and sporting activities. Look out for the bungy trampoline, pedal cars and talented buskers. Hire a bike or just walk to the coast path.
The coastline has a number of user-friendly foreshore parks and reserves. Most have large, grassed areas that are great for picnics and are equipped with BBQ facilities, playgrounds and public toilets.
