Covering approximately 60km of Pacific Ocean coastline, no wonder the Sunshine Coast has some of Australia’s (and arguably the worlds) best beaches back to back. One of the leaders is Kings Beach. The name says it all. Sure it’s a beach, but it’s also a lovely suburb attracting tourists from across the globe. And it’s number one draw card? Surprise, surprise; the beach.
Kings Beach is just that. A beach so stunning, it really should be labelled as royalty. It ticks all the boxes: Sand? Sunshine? Sea? Technically not the ocean, Kings Beach has double the swimming options. With the oceanfront saltwater swimming pool, you can enjoy a swim at the beach, without worrying about rips, sea creatures or waves.
Not that there is much to worry about in the first place. Kings Beach is the perfect spot for the whole family providing gentle conditions year round. Home to the Caloundra Surf Life Saving Club, enjoy the peace of mind knowing the kids are safe to play around in the waves on a patrolled shoreline.
The Caloundra Surf Life Saving Club doesn’t just provide a safe ocean for beachgoers, but fuels their hunger after a big day in the sun. The restaurant upstairs provides delicious meals at rightly prices, breathtaking panoramic views and a good selection of wines and spirits. In fact, it’s so nice, it’s not just called ‘The Surf Club’. Be pleasantly surprised by a whole new taste on club dining at The Met on Kings.
If the modern day Aussie tucker doesn’t get you excited, there are plenty of alternative eateries along Kings Beach to explore. From authentic Italian to spicy Thai, there is a flavour to suit every taste bud.
From taste buds to taste in music, the annual Caloundra Music Festival hits the grounds of Kings Beach for four days of sun, surf and soul. Featuring a diverse line-up of Australia’s best musicians as well as international artists, the CMF brings locals and visitors together to enjoy world-class music, divine festival food and creative art enriched in the local laidback culture.
It is this relaxed, beachside culture which makes Kings Beach one of the Sunshine Coast’s, Queensland’s, Australia’s and arguably the world’s best beaches. It has this festive atmosphere all year round.
What makes Kings Beach the King of seaside suburbs? Perhaps it’s the enchanting rock pools, the ocean front saltwater swimming pool, the gentle swell or the playground made of random spurting water fountains.
So round up the family, pack the beach bag and pull out the king of spades, or should we say, bucket and spade? Because Kings Beach is all about laidback, seaside living. Live it up like a coastal King.
