The beach is very popular with families as there are no big waves, you can walk out along the jetty and look back towards Glenelg, there are plenty of eateries to choose from catering to whatever you fancy.

Glenelg foreshore really is a great little spot, especially for young families. It is clean and safe with lots of free play areas to keep young ones amused and there is a variety of eateries near by. The sunsets can be spectacular.
