Nice pier. Good for fishing. The beach is spacious, clean and good for swimming. Close to the Glenelg Surf Lifesaving Club, restaurants, cafes, shops, trams and the Marina.

This is a lovely pier to wander out onto after lunch and look back at the beach - if it is blustery but warm it is very pleasant.

Lovely pier to amble along after lunch, take in the sites of the boats or the sea, Lots of restaurants, with fresh local fish dishes. Lots to choose from! Public toilets a little harder to find.

Being biased it is difficult as we live on Tweed which is five minutes from beautiful beaches. Lived in Adelaide for 30 years and thought the beaches great so travellers will do so too.

I do not think that the area is renowned for art works, but it is nice for a visit, perhaps a visit to the galley in the city would be the go there is a tram.
