Large beach, with a jetty to walk on (or fish). When we were there, a beach volleyball competition was going on, which was nice to watch.

When travelling to Adelaide this is another place that most people go, even local people. I am not sure if I would visit again, a bit busy all day. Heading along the coast further north it may be a bit quieter but just as nice along the water. A good starting point for a coast

Went here for ice cream after being in adelaide city centre. Very relaxing and great facilities for kids. Lots of restaurants, pubs, cafes and the usual subway etc here. Lots to do on the beach, huge kids park, lots of seating areas. Had a very much a Burleigh (in Good Coast)

This is the reason most visitors head to Glenelg for. Nice clean beach where you can chill away a few hours. All modern conveniences are just a stone's throw away. I imagine it will be extremely crowded in summer.

This is a great beach! Always lots of people around so you feel safe, but not too many that it's too crowded. There are some great cafes, take aways and restaurants close by so you don't need to go far.
