New Friend BB is in the small village of Horseshoe Bay on the north of Magnetic Island.
Our room was excellent with doors opening on to a small patio with garden beyond. The BB had a lovely swimming pool which was great to relax in at the start and finish of (the very hot) days.
Breakfasts really set us up for the day. Unforgetable, was opening the doors in the morning to be greeted by a bush covered with Lorikeets.
The owners were a fount of local information.
A short walk brought you to the beautiful Horseshoe Bay beach which is about 2K in length. We walked to the far end and had the beach to ourselves. The village has several restaurants.
There are numerous other beautiful bays, including Balding, Rocky and Radical Bays.
There is a regular bus service across the island linking with the ferry terminal at Nelly Bay.
