  • The Glenelg jetty is an accessible snorkeling and diving site. It reaches out into roughly 3 metres of water, and has interesting invertebrates and crustaceans living on the supporting piles. Access is from shore only. Stronger swimmers may be inclined to swim out beyond the jetty to "The Blocks" which provides several hundred metres of iron and concrete artificial reef.
  • From time to time, it’s a good idea to jump on a tram to the beach. Right from the city centre to Glenelg Beach, Adelaide’s summer hotspot. Strangely, for my entire year studying in Adelaide I didn’t even visit Glenelg Beach once. Only a few years later when I went back for my cousin’s wedding did I stumble upon something I missed. Why didn’t I hang out here more? Then 2 years back, I’m here again, taking in the wind and the sounds of the sea.
  • This is the place to come in adelaide on a hot summers night and on new year's eve. Lots of ice cream shops, plenty of top quality restaurants and bars as well as accommodation close by, all within walking distance. There is also the tram that takes you straight through the centre of the city then onto the entertainment centre for a small price.
  • Written on behalf of a mate: Comfortable budget accommodation. Was very pleasant waking up to the sound of waves after West Coasts big win the night before. A few too many seagulls though. Would stay again in the future.
  • A great place to watch the sun go down when at Glenelg.
