It's all about the beach - A video neighbourhood guide to Henley Beach, Adelaide's beach
Life In My Hood - Henley Beach
by Niki Berry
One of Adelaide's many fabulous beachside suburbs, Henley Beach is a short distance west of the CBD.
If you're trying to decide where to stay in Adelaide, there are plenty of things to do in Henley Beach. No surprises here really - there's a clue in the name - it's all about the beach. We asked local resident, teacher Niki Berry, to show us around her 'hood, sharing her tips for groceries, places to eat and where to find the best coffee in Henley Beach.
Niki says “Whether it’s a walk on the jetty, or playing cricket, it’s the beach. Enjoy a craft beer at Bacchus or finish the day watching the sunset from the Henley Beach Surf Club balcony.”
COFFEE IN MY HOOD
Niki says you'll find the best coffee in Henley Beach at:
303 By The Sea, 303 Seaview Road
“Set back just one block from the Esplanade, 303 has awesome breakfasts and even more awesome coffee.”
GROCERIES IN MY HOOD
Stocking up? Niki's recommendation for the best groceries in Henley Beach is:
Henley Square Foodland, 348-354 Seaview Rd
“Part of a local chain, Foodland still feels like a green grocer. It has a huge range of organic, vegan and gluten-free products.”
HANGING IN MY HOOD
For the day or just a few hours, Niki says the best thing to do in Henley Beach is to head down to The Jetty.
“Over 100 years old, the jetty is Henley Beach’s central focus. Watch fishermen or help out the crabbers pull up some nippers.”
GIFTS IN MY HOOD
If you're looking for the best place to buy a gift in Henley Beach, Niki says you'll find a great range at: One Rundle Trading Co, Shop 26, 340 Seaview Rd
“This interior design shop if full of gorgeous design-led objets d’art. But also some smaller bits to buy as a gift.”
EATING IN MY HOOD
If you need a local's tip on where to eat in Henley Beach, try Malobo, 257 Seaview Rd
“Mussels are the one thing you must eat in Henley Beach. And why not do so washed down with a local riesling?”
