Adelaide has many magnificent beaches, providing hours of amusement and enjoyment during the warmer weather. Henley Beach is the perfect place to relax with family or friends, offering a mixture of relaxing seaside charm and a number of eateries and stores to keep everyone entertained.

Everyone has his or her own idea of how time at the beach is best spent. However, no matter whether your preference is either lazing on the sand or swimming in the ocean, Henley Beach is a fantastic place to visit. If neither of those particularly appeals, another option is to take a walk along the jetty, enjoying the refreshing sea air.

Also, when spending time at the beach it is always worth bringing an umbrella or other type of shade, firstly to protect from the sun and secondly because this can serve as a reminder of where your items are located. This is especially useful when returning after swimming or leaving the beach momentarily. Some might say having a shade set up adds to the picturesque charm of the beach.

The sea air typically makes beachgoers hungry and there is a range of options for potential diners. Located just by the beach, Henley Square and its surrounds have a variety of take away and dine in eateries from which to choose. For example, one of the most commonly sought after meals, traditional fish and chips, are easily found courtesy of Henley Take Away. If an indulgent sweet is on the agenda, there are numerous places to grab a dessert, such as Copenhagen Ice Creamery, which has rich full flavoured ice creams on offer.

During summer, make the most of the weather and spend some time down by the beach. Henley offers an excellent seaside setting to enjoy the warmer weather. When you're not sitting on the sand or taking to the water, grab a bite to eat at the nearby eateries to complete the perfect daytime activity.
