Picnic Bay jetty is a great location to try your lucky at fishing, or to simply sit and watch the sun set while taking in the views of the Townsville coastline in the distance.

There is a specially designed swimming enclosure installed for the summer months to assist in protecting swimmers from stingers, and the beachfront is patrolled by lifesavers during the summer school holidays.

Magnetic Island’s only fully fenced playground is located across the road from the beachfront / Picnic Bay Hotel.
