Aquarius On The Beach
The spectacular balcony views impress almost as much as the size of this place, the tallest building on the Strand. Don’t be put off by the dated facade – this is one of the better places around, and the service is faultless.
Island Leisure Resort
Self-contained, Polynesian-style cabins (burés ) give this by-the-beach spot an extra-tropical feel. Private patios allow guests to enjoy their own piece of paradise: a lagoon pool and barbie area beckon social souls.
This motel provides basic rooms (some with balconies) in a waterfront location.
Beach House Motel
A guest house in every sense, with free pick-ups and laundry facilities, cosy, old-fashioned rooms and guaranteed peace and quiet thanks to a no-noise policy after 10pm.
Dunk Island View Caravan Park
Wake to fresh sea breezes at this clean and congenial spot just 50m from the beach. Everything you'd want from a caravan park, with the bonus of a new on-site cafe (fish and chips $8).
City Oasis Inn
The rooms in this spotless and friendly inn are hardly showing their age even though some of the original hotel was built motel-style in 1959. There are loft and self-contained (kitchenette) options...
Orchid Guest House
Not one for the party set, but a godsend to those looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful to lay their head. Weekly rates available for working backpackers.
Moondarra Motel is a friendly, bright and clean place to stay.
Chummy B&B with a guest kitchen, wonderful verandah and cassowary gatecrashers. Don't be alarmed by the teddy bears in your bedroom.
A charming little gem, this motel is not only great value, but friendly and well-appointed to boot. Close to the shops but tucked away behind lush greenery. Free bikes available.
Kookaburra Holiday Park
Well-run park that lends guests fishing rods, prawn nets and crab pots to catch dinner.
Well-managed, relaxed hostel with a hammock-festooned pool area, airy rooms, music piped into the bathrooms and a 24-hour kitchen. You can BYO drinks onto the premises.
Tropical Palms Inn
With a terrific little swimming pool right outside your front door, the self-contained motel units here are bright and comfortable. Reception rents 4WDs (from $75 per day).
Arcadia Beach Guest House
So much to choose from! Will you stay in a bright, beachy room (named after Magnetic Island’s bays), a safari tent or dorm? Go turtle-spotting from the balcony, rent a canoe, a Moke or a 4WD…or all of the above? Free ferry pick-ups.
