Marking the southerly limit of the Sunshine Coast is the town of Caloundra. Home to a number of great beaches, Kings Beach is the pick of the bunch.
The beach here is a good sized stretch of soft, golden sand backing onto a well-manicured park complete with bandstand and fountain. There’s also no shortage of eating options with a choice of cafes across the road.
Although somewhat sheltered the surf here still gets pretty good. But the beach is generally safe with a year-round lifeguard patrol keeping an eye on things. Should the waves become too much there is always the option of the oceanfront saltwater pool which enjoys a prime position overlooking the beach.
Kings Beach is possibly the best family beach on the whole coast. Along with the pool there are beachfront play-parks, a waterpark, rockpools and plenty of barbecue spots all along the beach.
