"Off to the beach we go! Day out to Glenelg" Top 5 Page for this destination Glenelg Tip by xuessium

Glenelg, Adelaide: 34 reviews and 58 photos

by xuessium

Pristine white sand; emerald green waters - that was what were attracting all the city-dwellers and visitors to these beach town, about 30 minutes away from Adelaide by tram. Come on a weekend and it would be jammed tight with merry-seeking and merry-making folks. It was almost like stepping into a carnival as everyone seemed to have just landed from a planet that had not seen the daylight of sadness and frustration.

Me & my gang spent about an hour on the sand, just sitting there and watching the world go by. Breathe the salty twang of the air; absorb the screeching of the gulls and sun-block yourself up for the sun!

For those who wanted more than just sun-sand-sea, you would find a flea market around Town Hall on the weekends, where local folks would display a sea of arts and crafts (paintings, hand-made jewelries etc) and other craps and non-craps for you to buy. Mingle and see what the locals has on offer for you. My lady friends had a swell time picking apart the bargains.

Getting around Glenelg is easy. Main street is Jetty Road (where all the shops, cafes and restaurants are) and you can travel along Jetty Road, completely FREE via the Glenelg Tram all the way from Moseley Square terminus to Jetty Road stop 19. Jump on and off the Tram at your leisure and never pay a cent!

Getting to Glenelg is easy: Take the Tram!

Address: Jetty Road, Glenelg
