Caloundra - Kings Beach

A couple of weekends ago we headed up to Kings Beach for our first beach swim of the season! It was a glorious day and the water was just lovely - clear as can be and not too cold. It was also fairly calm with only small waves -just how I like it, and perfect for the kids.

Kings Beach is great. I have only been there a couple of times as we normally go to Mooloolaba. It is really well set up with a large patrolled area, rockpools to explore down one end, parking nearby, a large park and waterplay area behind the beach plus plenty of nearby food outlets. My older boy was really into the rock pools and spent most of the morning playing there.

I find beaches are always at their best in the morning, so we headed up there quite early, enjoyed the morning at the beach, had a picnic lunch in the shady park on Ormond Terrace, then headed home.

We all had a really enjoyable day, the only drawback to this place I can see is that in Summer it gets really busy. But that's true of all the beaches I imagine!
