Kings Beach is a scenic family-friendly beach in the heart of Caloundra. As you swim in the calm waters, look back on the beach to see the Glass House Mountains rising up in the distance. Kings Beach is widely known to have the best surfing conditions in Caloundra and also has lifeguards on patrol year-round.
Take the family to the fun-filled local water playground and fountain, which spurts jets of water at surprise intervals. Walk along the shorefront and explore the fascinating rock pools. You can also go fishing, sailing, scuba diving, windsurfing or Jet Skiing off the coast. Slow the pace and simply laze on the golden sands and listen to the waves.
Have a barbecue or picnic in the grassy park area from where you will have panoramic ocean views. Dine from an outdoor terrace at one of the restaurants along the waterfront.
