First visit to Glenelg beach and I loved it. This beach is pristine and strolling along the jetty was glorious- but a little windy.

Took the tram and visited the Glenelg Beach. Jetty, small ice skating ring, playing ground for children, cafes and restaurants- a good people watching and relaxation day.

Third visit but definitely the most windy. Quite wild weather today. Beach set out well. Good grassed and play areas. Drinking water in abundance. Ice skating rink up today. Last time the Mosley Beach Bar was up and running. Always nice to visit

Such a beautiful environment here at Glenelg - the bridge at the pier was unfortunately covered due to construction works but it did not stop patronage at the cafes and restaurants - glorious sunshine on the weekend ending June beginning of July
