As the most famous and popular, Glenelg Beach is the poster child of the Adelaide Beaches for all things fun.
The wide and shallow beach with its white sand and shady picnic spots is a great place for families to set up camp for the day and let the kids build sandcastles safely. When the sun gets too hot, take the kids to The Beachhouse for the waterslides, a round of mini-golf, arcade games or bumper cars. The Foreshore playground is another great place to keep the kids happy and occupied.
The fun doesn’t stop there, though. There is also plenty to do for adults in Glenelg Beach. After an exhausting day of shopping in the busy coastal mall and along Jetty Road, it’s time to wind down. As Australia’s only official bar right on the beach, The Moseley is your place to be for a delicious sundowner, feet in the sand.
For an extra memorable experience, we recommend the dolphin cruise. Leaving from Glenelg Beach, Temptation Sailing doesn’t only guarantee dolphin sightings on its designated tours, you can even get up close and swim with them!
