Henley Beach


Henley Beach is a popular beachside suburb of Adelaide, offering white sand, gentle surf, a popular dining square and regular live entertainment in the summer.

Take your family and spread out on the sand, or enjoy a picnic on the grassed areas. Take advantage of the shade beneath Henley Beach’s long jetty, or bring along the fishing rod and try your luck. The lapping waters are ideal for families.

Henley Square is here – a popular Adelaide dining spot, offering fine cafes and restaurants including Thai and Greek. Dine outdoors while you watch the sun set over the ocean. The square fills up quickly in the summer months. Enjoy a few drinks at the nearby Ramsgate Hotel or Bacchus Wine Bar. There’s no shortage of indoor dining options, but sometimes the best option is tried and tested fish and chips on the grass.

During the summer months, you can watch bands playing in Henley Square or enjoy a local festival.

Henley Beach Road has a cornucopia of food stores and eateries – Asian, African, Mediterranean and Indian. All this, just 20 minutes from the Adelaide city centre.

Henley Beach is located around 20 minutes west of the Adelaide city centre. Walk north along the beach and after about twenty minutes you’ll reach the Grange Jetty. Here you’ll find the Grange Jetty Kiosk, the perfect spot to kick back with a coffee (or meal) while enjoying amazing ocean views.
