Property Description

Arcadia Beach Guest house is a unique laid back choice for your Island getaway. We are nestled between the tropical gardens at the rear of the property and the beach directly across the road. We offer a pick and drop off to the ferry terminal (small surcharge applies) and there is a bus stop nearby.

Relax on the front deck with BBQ facilities and pool overlooking the beach or choose to relax 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. Geoffrey Bay has wonderful snorkelling opportunities, with the self-guided snorkel trail and Molke shipwreck at your doorstep. Take advantage of this great location by taking a stroll to the end of the bay to see the local rock wallabies or hike one of the many bush walks to see koalas in their natural habitat. Here, you are surrounded by the beauties of nature and Magnetic Island's abundant wildlife.

Why not have some fun exploring the island and hire one of our open top 4WD’s or enclosed wagons and head off to the more remote and picturesque beaches of Radical Bay, Arthur Bay and Florence Bay. You can then finish the day taking in the awesome sunset at Westpoint. (Keep in mind only 4WD’s are permitted down these roads if you are hiring a car).

We look forward to welcoming you to our island paradise. View House Rules

    Fabulous hostel. I can’t recommend it enough. The vibe was incredibly chill which suits maggie perfectly. Location was fab and easy to get everywhere. Ian is great - helpful and provides all the information you need to enjoy the island. Rooms and beds were comfortable. Bathrooms spotless. What more can I say - it was awesome :)

    If you’re coming to magnetic stay here, Ian was so helpful. He picked us up from the ferry and dropped us off, carried my mrs bag for here because I had 3 and he made sure we had a car to rent to see the island and was more than fair. Very clean guest house and met some amazing people here also, it’s just 2 minutes down the road from the rock wallaby’s and a short walk from the shops, great hostel will definitely stay here again

    We had an amazing stay at this guesthouse! The location was excellent, very close to all the main attractions. The actual room was lovely and clean and so were the shared bathrooms. The shared lounge and kitchen area was also great and there was lots of space. Most of all, Ian and Craig were the best hosts. They took the time to talk to us and explain what there was to do on Magnetic Island. Couldn’t recommend Arcadia Guest House enough! Will definitely be back again when we no doubt return!

    Really great location between Horseshoe Bay and Nelly Bay. The staff gives you the ins and outs of the area! The room was air conditioned. When I went the atmosphere was quite chill which is exactly what I was after.
