Warm, balmy nights in Adelaide are best spent beach-side, a cocktail in hand. Jump on a tram just 20 minutes to Adelaide’s favourite city beach, Glenelg. Walk along the foreshore and grab a bite to eat at one of the many restaurants dotting Jetty Road before kicking your shoes off and pulling up a seat at the bar without even taking your toes out the sand. Grab a cocktail at Australia’s only official bar on the beach, Moseley Beach Club, and drink in the summer party vibes surrounded by white sand and lapping waves. Casual dining is available as well as a bar, with live music and DJs providing the perfect summer soundtrack well in to the night.

South Australian skies put on a show come sundown when collages of blazing red, yellow and orange paint the sky in a sunset spectacular not to be missed. With so many incredible west-facing beaches, you’ll have front row seats on the sand to a fiery show-stopper as the sun slips behind the ocean. Jump on the tram to Glenelg’s Moseley Square, visit Brighton Beach for a post-work beach stroll or mosey down to Henley for dinner, drinks and incomparable sunset views. Other city beach sunset hot spots include Semaphore, Port Noarlunga and Grange. For sunset views over the city and hills, head just minutes from the city to Mount Osmond – the perfect spot for a picnic with a view.
