When is a beach not a beach? When it’s City Beach of course.
Smack bang in the middle of the city is block of beach sand sandwiched between highrise buildings and busy city streets.
Why is there a beach in the city? To play beach volleyball of course.
It’s both very cool and very quirky this little patch of sports ground on the corner of Pirie and Frome Streets in the Adelaide CBD.
While on the courts you could be on a beach anywhere in Australia assuming you are focused on the game and not the glass and concrete horizon.
