With an abundant marine ecosystem and beautiful waters comes plenty of opportunity to engage in exciting water sports and activities, guided by educated locals.
The Glenelg Tram has its own reservation to make exploring easy, with opportunity to jump on and off along the city route. Some lengths of the trip are even free!
Our accommodation is considered some of the best in the state, with premium service, stunning views, and fantastic accessibility to all the best hot spots.
Glenelg is in a league of its own, filled with stunning ocean landscapes, sophisticated historic buildings, and communal areas that have been designed by esteemed architects. The town is easily accessible from Adelaide City using the Glenelg Tram, and has plenty to offer from the moment of arrival. Our diverse range of activities and entertainment is designed to involve the whole family, with opportunities like fishing charters, sailing, beach volleyball, walking trails, bike hire, history tours and so much more! There’s also the famous dolphin swim with Temptation Sailing, which is a fantastic way to scope out the beautiful waters while engaging with the playful wildlife. Once you visit Glenelg once, you’ll keep coming back for more!
We’ve been busy sifting through past history exhibitions to bring you some entertaining online content. We’ll be adding as we go but for now sit back and enjoy reading about past Holdfast Bay storms to the beach culture of the 1930s onwards.
We welcome Temptation Sailing back to Marina Pier on the 19th of September after their winter break. Please check their website for cruise availability www.dolphinboat.com.au
