This place is in a great location with a short walk to feed the wallabies, head out for dinner or swim at Alma Bay. My partner and I stayed upstairs in the Florence Bay room with communal bathrooms and share kitchens downstairs. The room was...More
We arrived on Christmas Day, checking in early as we caught the only car ferry that morning.
Checking in early didn't seem to be a problem nor did any thing else we needed. The owners and their family were very helpful in letting us know...More

Read the wonderful reviews on here about Arcadia Guest House so we stayed in a private room for 2 nights. The room wasn't properly cleaned when we arrived... There were crumbs on the floor.
The room and hotel were very dated and old fashioned.
We spent a lovely weekend staying in the Alma Bay, King Studio at Arcadia Beach at the end of October. Brilliant location and hosts. On check in Dana set us up for a great experience of Magnetic Island giving information on the walks, wildlife, local...More

There is plenty of snorkeling very near to us including both an established snorkel trail at Geoffrey Bay and an excellent beach snorkeling spot at Alma Bay. Both of these are within easy walking distance from us (5-10 mins). The other great spot we recommend - Florence Bay is about a 20 minute 4 wheel drive away.
Access to the island is also very easy. There are 2 regular ferry services from Townsville to Magnetic Island - Sealink is a fast foot passenger service and Fantasea a slower car ferry. They both run regularly (every hour or so) between 5:30am and 11pm.
Hopefully that information helps, but please get in touch again if you have any further questions.
