Horseshoe Bay: Fun And Sun On Magnetic Island

Horseshoe Bay is a beautiful coastal village on Magnetic Island in Queensland. The Horseshoe Bay area is considered to be the recreational and entertainment hub of the island, and there's no better place for travellers to stay while exploring Magnetic Island. The island, known as 'Maggie Island' or 'Maggie' to the locals, is located just eight kilometres offshore. Maggie is accessible by ferry via the Townsville Breakwater harbour. The ferry only takes about 20 minutes and lands at Nelly Bay.

Townsville Accommodation At Horseshoe Bay

Horseshoe Bay accommodation is stylish and sunny, with lush tropical gardens and cool island breezes. Many Horseshoe Bay holiday rentals have spacious, bright kitchens as well as outdoor decks or patios. Most accommodation is just a short walk from the beaches, shops, and local attractions. If you're looking for a breezy island getaway, you'll have it all in Horseshoe Bay: most rentals even have a private pool, so you can spend your days swimming and sunning in style.

Enjoy The Waters Of Horseshoe Bay

Horseshoe Bay boats the largest bay on the island, making it perfect for watersports or beach trip. Popular pastimes include sea kayaking, waterskiing, snorkeling, paragliding, catamaran sailing, scuba diving, and fishing. Hire a watercraft or taking a fishing or sailing trip around the island. Cruises are another popular way to see the island. A new enclosure also allows visitors to swim safely on the island's beaches. If you book a beach horseback tour with Horseshoe Ranch, you can even swim on horseback!

Explore Magnetic Island

Magnetic Island is known for its wild koala population, so be sure to ask an island resident where you can find a nearby colony. The eucalyptus and rainforest sections of the island are home to fascinating wildlife, so you may want to get out and explore the island's wilder side. Be on the lookout for rock wallabies!

The Magnetic Island National Park takes up roughly half the island. You'll find turtle nesting, koalas, and a wide variety of stunning native birds. Though the best way to see the beauty of the park is by foot, be sure to bring plenty of water for your hike, as water availability may be limited. If you're looking to go hiking, head for the Nelly Bay-Arcadia trail for a stunning five kilometre walk through some of Maggie's loveliest terrains. The Forts walk is another popular trail, offering beautiful views on the way to see some of the island's remaining World War II infrastructure.

The strip by Horseshoe Bay Beachfront is where you'll find the island's best restaurants and cafes. At night, walk the beachfront and listen to the live music overflowing from the strip.

With so much to do and see on the island, you'll never want to leave the shores of Horseshoe Bay.
