You can jump on a tram from just about anywhere in the CBD and travel in comfort to Glenelg Beach. It's a wee precinct of restaurants, shops, retail, hotels, etc. You can walk along the beach or go for a swim. There's plenty to do....More

What can say apart from stunning. Best place in the world. You can walk for miles along the beach. Lots of cafes along the way.

Great beach promenade. The beach is very well maintained and clean. Great for an early morning walk, run or an evening sun set stroll and then heading for one of the restaurants. When in Adelaide, there is only one place to be. Glenelg Beach.

Large beach shelving gently into the ocean. All the facilities you would require close to hand on the beach walk and Jetty Street.

Lovely soft sand beach with turquoise water. Not too cold considering southern ocean! Great shops and restaurants/cafes on the front at reasonable prices and plenty of parking both free and paid to speak of. Really enjoyed our day with our 2 year old.
