Sunshine Coast hotels

Kings Beach is a suburb in Caloundra. Of the same name is Kings Beach, which is one of the major Sunshine Coast beaches.This is a good place for body boarders and swimmers away from the dumping waves of nearby Moffat Beach.

Kings Beach was named after the King family, the first residents in the area. After living at Moffat Head in James Moffat’s home for a while, they moved to the Kings Beach area in Kings Beach is protected from north-east winds and features a tidal pool ideal for families with children.

Closer to the point, conditions are ideal for snorkellers looking to explore the local marine life. Care must be taken when accessing this area as the rocks can be tricky to negotiate. Surfers require a large north-east swell and northerly winds to create any decent waves. The beach is usually too popular for anglers, but try throwing a line in off the rocks in the evening. Toilets and showers are available at different access points to the beach. The access from Leyuka Avenue boasts a children's playground and general store near the Metropolitan Surf Life Saving Club.
