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

    Really enjoyed our stay at Arcadia. Camping out in the tent was a great experience and the hostel in general is a nice quirky little space. The island is pretty chilled with loads to explore and not much partying so Arcadia was ideal. Ian the owner really makes the difference. Gave us a full outline on the map of where to go and when for the best experience which money can’t really buy. Plus he offers the great deal on truck rental and scuba stuff etc. Defo recommend

    Such a great place to stay if you’re trying to relax and get away from partying. Not too far from where the ferry docks. Snorkeling gear is available to rent at a reasonable price.

    Absolutely loved our stay here! Quirky little place with really cute tents (like glamping), all kitted our with even electricity sockets inside. The owner Ian was lovely and showed us exactly where to go on the island and what to do (one of the highlights was the wallabies which are just down the road!!) He also dropped us back to the ferry which was extremely kind. Would definitely recommend!!!

    An amazing experience to stay there, such a friendly staff.. the cleanliness of the toilets is an outstanding, they even provide soft towels without charges. Really calm, chill and nice atmosphere. You can even rent a car/jeep to explore the island, a real one! Hope to come back!!!

    My stay at the Arcadia Beach Guest House was much better than expected! There is plenty of space, several kitchens, a barbie, a pool and many seating areas. There were only few but sociable people staying in the hostel. The owner was super nice and helpful. He offered snorkeling gear and all kinds of tips for the island as well. I also think that I got upgraded because I cannot recall booking a two share dorm room. There is breakfast for $10 in the morning. I didn’t not try it though.

    Great hostel near the ferry terminal in a beautiful bay. Ian is lovely and the resident giant dog Sabre is adorable. We stayed in a tent and it was super comfy, clean, and great value for money. Great alternative to the noisy party hostels.

    If you want experience a night under tents, do book at Arcadia. They have big tents for private double rooms, well equipped! But don’t be afraid of bugs, because you’ll be surrounded by them in the camp. The tent is equipped with a net so you’ll sleep alright, just don’t leave food packets open or you’ll find ants in the morning! The staff is cool, they will show you the best places to go to in Maggies!

    This hostel had a bedbug infestation. I showed the staff member the bed bug that I found and he moved me to a tent in the backyard of a different property. Was not a good experience.
