Discover Semaphore: the ultimate destination for fun in the sun

Just 20 minutes from Adelaide’s CBD, the seaside town of Semaphore is a summer-loving paradise known for its sandy beaches, vibrant foreshore and chic cafes. Fun in the sun is a way of life around this neck of the woods; spend your days lounging on sandy white shores, plunging into turquoise waters or exploring the expansive foreshore where you’ll find a waterslide, mini golf and Ferris wheel. In summer, you can even take a ride on the steam train that puffs along the shoreline. The picturesque foreshore and boulevard are dotted with beautifully preserved Art Deco buildings and the Palais Hotel takes centre-stage; the perfect spot to grab a pub-style lunch or enjoy a glass of wine. Just metres away, Semaphore Road is bordered by historic pubs, restaurants and boutiques.
