    Glenelg is a great place to go to but Semaphore has my vote.

    It has parking and a deli for snacking

    Nuff Said

    Ahh yes, but Glenelg has a number of watering holes, beach volleyball, and more food outlets than you can poke an Alf at!

    Plus it has major shark patrols. Haven't heard of anyone being attacked in Glenelg's waters, have you? [face_thinking]

    actually, a Marine Biologist (I think) was taken by a shark off the waters at Glenelg last summer.

    Moana is a lovely beach and from memory is great for beach cricket! Bit far for the Northerners though! :(

    Not that bad, more chance getting hit by a car than getting attacked.
    In the past 50yrs 60 people have been taken so about 1.2 a year.
    Just kinda sucks if you happen to be the 1. or the .2 :p

    Or as a joke with a friend who already jumped in.

    I'm afraid my heart goes to Glenelg, it's a cute little tram ride there and I love it more everytime I go there. I love Moana as well, and Grange is easy enough to get to, but Sempaphore is a bit far and at least Glenelg is a happy middle between north and south.

    then i think semaphore would be a good choice as it has that little channel set back a little bit from the shore line so the littler kids can swim without going too far out!!

    .......and for some reason my girls dont like waves!!!:confused:
