Brighton offers the perfect balance of vibrancy and relaxation. Centred around Jetty Road, the suburb has cafés and restaurants which feed the masses, while the calming expanse of sand and water soothes the soul.
Picturesque Brighton Beach is an endearing drawcard. Families relax under beach umbrellas while sailing boats, dinghies and stand-up-paddle boards are scattered across the water. To the South, Seacliff headland lends a sense of intimacy for those looking for a bit more privacy while a proud surf lifesaving contingent makes the beach feel extra safe.
Away from the sand, fitness lovers find their groove on the wide footpath that runs parallel to the water. The greenspaces are a gathering point for friends and family taking advantage of the playgrounds and great barbeque facilities.
Gentle sand dunes and shrubbery separate the beach from the shopping precinct, where baristas work overtime. Fish 'n' chips and ice cream are abundant while newer culinary eateries champion local produce and provide picnics to take-away.
Stroll down Jetty Road and you'll find bookshops, fashion boutiques, children's shops and the Esplanade Hotel, the ideal spot for a refreshing drink as the sun goes down. For serious shopping and more night-time entertainment, Adelaide City is easily accessible by car, bus or train.
