Arthur Bay

Natural Attractions

Arthur Bay is located on the north-east corner of Magnetic Island. With neighbouring bay Florence and just a short walk from the iconic Forts walk; Arthur Bay is the perfect location for lunch or a swim. With fringing reefs out-skirting Arthur Bay, don’t forget to pack your snorkel gear.

With less traffic than the main beaches, Arthur Bay is perfect for sun lovers to immerse and relax under the cover of the granite boulders and native hoops pines that surround the bay.

Within a short walk, you can find one of the most iconic photo locations of Magnetic Island. Arthur Bay lookout is a 200 metre walk from the bay and showcases the island’s natural untouched landscape.

Koala’s, rock wallabies, possums and more visit this bay and you can quite often see whales visiting these waters in the right season.

The beach house at Arthur Bay is the only property in the whole of Arthur Bay. The house is available to book as a holiday home.
