Glenelg Beach Review
Located just 10 km (6 miles) from the Adelaide city center, Glenelg is a charming beachside suburb known for its sandy beach, historic jetty, serene marinas, bustling shops, hotels, restaurants, bars and The Beachhouse entertainment complex. Trams lead the way to the beach carrying passengers along Jetty Road from the city while pedestrians weave in and out of the various retail outlets that line the strip. A day trip to Glenelg is a must, but this seaside resort setting offers plenty of options for backpackers to more discerning travelers to make this their Adelaide base. The beach is large, sandy, and the waters are calm. But expect to see large crowds on hotter days and depending on the season, seaweed can be a problem. Amenities: parking, toilets, lifeguards, showers, food and drink, water sports. Best for: swimming, sunrise, sunset, windsurfing, walking.
