Horseshoe Bay

Horseshoe Bay is the largest bay on Magnetic Island. Ideal for watersports, almost every watercraft imaginable is available for hire as well as being a departure point for sailing, cruising, fishing and kayak trips. Here too, you can experience swimming on horseback. There is also a new safe swimming enclosure.

Normally several fishing boats can be seen anchored at the eastern end of the bay making ready for their trip out to the Great Barrier Reef.

Also, just a few hundred metres from the main roads, in the Horseshoe Bay Lagoon Environmental Park. If you approach quietly you may see some of the many water birds which frequent this fresh water lagoon especially after a wet season. Horseshoe Bay Beachfront is considered the tourist strip of the Island, with a substantial array of restaurants, cafes, and bars with live entertainment. The area is also great for families with playground facilities and sheltered picnic tables.
