Fodor's Expert Review Henley Beach
The beach in this quiet coastal suburb offers white sand, gently lapping waves, summer entertainment, and a square known for popular dining spots. You'll find families spread out along the sand, and there are places on the grassy areas to enjoy picnics. The jetty is perfect for walking or fishing—drop a line in the water and try your luck. During summer, Henley Beach Square bordering the center of the beach itself comes alive with live music and festivals while eateries along Henley Beach Road bring the world to your plate—Asian, African, Mediterranean, and Indian mix with local cuisine. Amenities: food and drink; parking; toilets. Best for: swimming; sunrise; sunset; walking; windsurfing.
