Kings Beach Local Guide

City/town information

Kings Beach is the epitome of that funky little beach town that seems to never change. Its main road (CA Highway 28) is lined with old-timey hotels, cool shops and a good choice of restaurants. Despite the obvious draw of the royalty-level beach, the name of the town was not based on that accolade. Local lore has it that the name Kings Beach originated from a card shark named Joe King who won the town in a poker match.
