Taking a holiday along Balgal Beach's shores is relaxing and exciting at the same time. Enjoying private homes can make holiday travel times one of the best ever. Balgal Beach holiday rentals are within walking distance of the Coral Sea's shores and less than 20 kilometres from the Townsville area.
Nestled along the Coral Sea coastline, Balgal beach is a popular holiday destination for many reasons. Soft, sandy beaches with calm, clear surf beckon travellers from all areas. Because of its calm surf and clear waters, Balgal beach is a great destination for kayaking, sailing, fishing, swimming, and even bird watching. There are many inlets for fishing where travelers can catch their meals daily.
Surrounded by Natural beauty, Balgal Beach rests near several popular natural attractions, Paluma Range National Park, Magnetic Island National Park, and Rollingstone State Forest. Each of these natural areas is part of the West Tropics World Heritage area and is comprised of some of the world's oldest rainforests. Many types of endangered plants and animals reside within these areas and are enjoyed by visitors all year.
This park is for travellers looking for a quiet afternoon in a secluded setting. Mountainous terrain covered by majestic rainforest surrounds the various secluded spots for picnicking and wildlife viewing. A quick walk to Jourama Falls takes visitors breath away with the beauty of the water that cascades over the falls and flows through rapids.
This natural attraction isn't popular just for its natural beauty. Water lovers will enjoy the freshwater swimming area when warmer weather persists. From April to September visitors can enjoy the commercial market where all types of wares, ranging from crafts to foods, are for sale. The Rollingstone Railway station submerses visitors in local heritage and history while they stroll through the plentiful artifacts. Afterward, at the pub, travellers can enjoy a cold beverage while listening to local bands or strolling through the various craft fairs.
This park covers over half of Magnetic Island. Sun shines over the turquoise waters and pristine beaches over 320 days per year. Accessible only by passenger or vehicle ferries, this wonder is a natural paradise.
One of the most popular things to do on Magnetic Island is snorkeling or diving. The Inner Great Barrier Reef lies just offshore and offers visitors many reefs, shoals, and headlands where marine life abounds. Divers may also explore offshore shipwrecks.
If diving isn't on the agenda, consider a sea kayaking tour. Glide along the shining waters while dolphins play nearby. Eagles dive for the abundant fish below and sea turtles glide by. There are many other types of island tours available including 4-wheel vehicles, scooters, motorcycle, and bicycle.
Making your holiday memorable is as easy as choosing a holiday rental over a hotel. With Balgal Beach and Townsville accommodation, all the comforts of home are available including fully-equipped kitchens, open and spacious areas, and privacy not found inside a hotel.
