About Kings Beach
Feel your worries wash away as you crest the hill and absorb the spectacular panorama lying in front of you as you arrive at your destination.
A dramatic fusion of raw nature and timeless architecture, the location and design of Kings Beach Retreats will take your breath away. Local wineries, restaurants, farmers markets, boutique gin distilleries and other attractions of the beautiful and abundant Fleurieu Peninsula are only a short drive away.
Located on the prominent Kings Head a little over an hours drive from Adelaide, this hidden gem (designed by renowned architect Ian Hannaford) provides 360 degree views which encompass rural vistas with grazing cattle and kangaroos, the spectacular Waitpinga Cliffs, West Island, the Bluff and, in the far distance, the sandhills of the Coorong.
Paintings by acclaimed painter & sculptor Robert Hannaford and his talented wife, artist Alison Mitchell, enliven the walls of the retreats and extend the theme of communing with nature.
The secluded Kings Beach and its ancient Aboriginal fish trap (which serves as a safe and private ocean swimming pool) is only a two minute walk away.
The famous Heysen Trail, fast gaining an international reputation for stunning coastal walks, is right at your doorstep.
A thirty minute walk will bring you to the prominent landmark The Bluff which overlooks Encounter Bay.
Whether it is unique coastal wildlife, amazing southern ocean views, hikes along the cliff tops, lazing on the beach, whale watching or reading a book from the window seat of your private conservatory, King Beach Retreats are perfectly located and sensitively designed to enable a true communion with nature and the restoration of your soul.
