Glenelg is Adelaide’s main recreational beach (230D). It is at the end of the tramline and has traditionally been Adelaide’s favourite and most accessible beach. The development here reflects this with a jetty, backed by parks, and major hotels and various recreational and amusement facilities (Fig. 4.65 & 4.66). The Glenelg Surf Life Saving Club is located in the foreshore park, 200 m north of the jetty. The beach terminates at the Patawalonga breakwater, where the breakwater and an artificial reef off the beach have trapped the sand causing the beach to build over 100 m seaward. Inside the breakwater is a quiet 50 m long pocket of sand (230E) used by the sailing club for launching their boats.
