If you are staying or passing through Glenelg (Adelaide's popular seaside suburb) there is a range of things to see and do. Keep in mind the weekend and warmer weather attracts greater crowds and during the weekdays and cooler days Glenelg tends to be a lot quieter. 

Firstly getting to Glenelg is simple using the tram which runs through the city (CBD), there are stops at the end of Rundle Mall and at Victoria Square. If you choose to take the tram getting off at the last stop will take you to the centre of Glenelg, as it travels down the main street labelled Jetty Road.

Jetty Road offers a range of shops including fashion, boutique stores, designer home-ware stores, surf shops, book stores and souvenir shops. There is also The Beachouse, an entertainment complex, ideally aimed for children with waterslides, mini golf and bumper boats. The Bay Discovery centre can also be visited with a gold coin donation ($1/ $2).  

There is some great spots for coffee, cake and lunch- popular cafe's include GrindIt (just of Jetty Road on Mosley Street) and Zest (also just of Jetty Road on Sussex Street). There is abundant restaurants ranging from an array of cuisines, some favourites include Mama Carmela's (Italian), Indochine (Asian),  Phuket (Thai), Pride of India (Indian), Gringos (Mexican) and many more!

When it comes to nightlife in Glenelg, there are several popular spots on the weekends, most of the venues are in Mosley Square and all very close in walking distance. The Jetty Bar offers live music and dj's, it is a laid-back bar where flip-flops and shorts are accepted. Across for the Jetty Bar is the Dublin, an Irish Pub, whilst prices are a little more expensive it is a nice bar with great beers and popular on Sunday evenings. The Grand, Glenelg's biggest bar situated on the beach front, it is very popular on Sunday nights, especially in summer and at times a large line to get into the venue. And finally The Pier, a short walk towards the Holdfast Marina where there is another bar located on the beach front, attracting an older crowd it can also be a bit of fun.

At Glenelg you can go swimming in the ocean (if the weather permits), play some beach volleyball, beach football or go for a walk along the beach. 6.5km from Glenelg (South) is Brighton, you can walk along the promenade or the beach. Brighton is another beachside suburb and also offers restaurants, cafes similar to Glenelg but smaller in size. 

Glenelg is a great place to visit and enjoy the sea breeze.
