1. Smell the serenity
Modern living = hustle bustle 24/7. Let's face it, sometimes you just need to get away and take some time for yourself. There's just something special about Horseshoe Bay that is more than the peace and tranquility of the softly moving waves and that secluded feeling. Visit at sunrise for an extra special zen moment.
2. 10 kicks to discover the reef
Pull up in the car, jump out, grab towel, grab goggles, take 10 steps into the underwater world (no boat needed!)
Yep, it really is that simple! Horseshoe Bay has fringing reef mere metres from the shoreline and is perfect for exploring the reef from the mainland.
3. That view
Drop. Dead. Gorgeous. No explanation needed really!
4. Those rock formations
We love a bit of wonder - like, we wonder how they got there? And we wonder what's just over that boulder? Perfect for exploring and for keeping the kids busy for hours or simply for wondering at while you soak in that turquoise water.
5. A spot for everyone
Take your pick! Find a spot behind a rock = secluded beach. Sit smack bang in the middle of the beach and you still don’t feel crowded. All you need now is a good book and your beach heaven is complete!
Lucky for us Horseshoe Bay is just one of Bowen's amazing beaches - #visitbowen and discover the rest!
