We are a senior couple and do not ride but I have to say as the bus stopped for the Horses to cross the road from the Ranch it was a wonderful sight. One could only wish that we were young again to be able to ride a horse and enjoy all of the activities the island can provide. Well we put our wishes away and relied on the horsepower of the local buses to take us to Horseshoe Bay. Beautiful there isn't any other words for it. We had come over from Townsville on the local ferry and as it was a sunny day looking back towards the harbour and Castle Hill it was just magic. The buses are waiting for us at the wharf, so as my partner and I have trouble in walking far this was a pleasant surprise. Also another surprises is the halved fares not only on the boat but also on the buses. (Senior Rates) this is a pleasant surprise for the pocket.
As we travelled around the island the beaches are so picturesque they remind me of Waiheke Island Auck NZ. White sands and lots of people sunbathing, canoeing, snorkelling, Diving, anything that you can do in the water then Magnetic Island is the place to go. We only spent an afternoon there but will be going back for a lot longer next time . Although we can't do all of the activities it is such a peaceful place to just veg out at any age. Don't forget at the end of the beach is caffe del isola - iceream to died for! This is where you pick the bus up
