Fodor's Review

This is the first main swimming beach southwest of Hobart—it's less than 30 minutes' drive from the Huon Valley. The beach sits in front of the fairly developed town of Kingston, on the Derwent River at the mouth of Browns Rivulet. Shopping and housing sit behind and to the south of the beach, and a narrow reserve, picnic area, and playground back the sand. Kingston Beach is patrolled by the local Surf Life Saving Club; however, you should still keep clear of any boating

activity in the south corner; the waters are quite deep directly off the beach. Amenities: food and drink, lifeguards, showers, toilets, parking (free). Best for: walking, surfing, swimming.
