Kings Beach (1554) is Caloundra's main surfing beach. It is located adjacent to the centre of town and is ringed by apartments and holiday flats. It is home to both the Caloundra Surf Life Saving Club, founded in 1924, and the Caloundra Juniors Surf Life Saving Club. The northern end begins as the rocks of Caloundra Head are replaced by sand. There is an elevated pool on the rock platform, a large car park across the road and a grassy reserve, fronted by a seawall, running from the pool to the surf club, 200 m down the beach. The reserve continues to the centre of the beach, beyond which are beachfront apartments. The beach is 500 m long and faces south-east. However, waves are reduced by Moreton Island and average 0.5 to 1 m, which maintain a continuous attached bar usually cut by three rips. The southern end terminates at Deepwater Point; a low, rocky headland and platform, together with a rock groyne. Beyond the point are the shifting sand bars and channels of the Pumicestone Channel mouth, a large tidal creek that runs behind Bribie Island.
