So much to choose from! Will you stay in a bright, beachy room (named after Magnetic Island’s bays), a safari tent or a dorm? Go turtle-spotting from the balcony, rent a canoe, a Moke or a 4WD…or all of the above? Free ferry pickups.

Property description


Arcadia Beach Guest house is a unique laidback experience, offering an Island getaway. The property is nestled between tropical gardens at the rear of the property and the beach directly across the road.

Relax on the front deck equipped with BBQ facilities and a pool overlooking the beach, or choose to unwind in one of our communal spaces which boast 2 fully equipped kitchens, generous open air lounge dining areas, a free pool table and outdoor pizza oven.

Arcadia Beach Guest House is located directly across from the beautiful Geoffrey Bay Marine Park hosting many varieties of marine life. It has wonderful snorkelling opportunities with the self-guided snorkel trail and Molke shipwreck at your doorstep. Stroll to the end of the bay to see the rock wallabies or take a bush walk to amazing lookouts and see koalas in their natural habitat.

You can hire an open top 4WD or enclosed wagons and head off to the more remote and picturesque beaches of Radical Bay, Arthur Bay and Florence Bay for some snorkelling and finish the day taking in the awesome sunset at Westpoint.

The property is a 20-minute ferry journey from mainland Townsville. It is a 3-minute drive to Nelly Bay Harbour and Marina. Magnetic Island National Park and the Magnetic Island Golf Course are both a 7-minute drive away.
