#2 of 6 B&Bs / Inns in Bowen
A 'real' beachside holiday can be had at Horseshoe Bay Resort. With fully selfcontained accommodation that will sleep up to 6 people. Bush walking tracks are so close and snorkel right off the beach to see corals and fish and sometimes even a turtle or seahorse. Sandy beach even when the tide is out, you can just sit and soak in the sun for the day, or have lunch at the Cafe just close by.

This is a lovely out of the way spot in Bowen we have now unexpectedly stayed at twice. The facilities are very clean, tidy and the kitchen extremely well stocked with everything. It's quiet and very close to the water if you are a boaty and or fishing enthusiast. The only disappointment was the wifi, which for some of us is an important part of our camping adventures, especially looking for the next place to stop and explore, I could not get any good reception to use even though I was told there were 'boosters ' everywhere. Lovely people running the place too !!!

We decided that 4 of us would go to Bowen for one night and of course nobody wanted us for only one night. The last place I called was Horseshoe Bay Resort and to my surprise they said 'yes'. We arrived early and again were surprised that we could get the cabin. Also I was told that they had already made up the sofa bed. The Cabin is definitely one of the cleanest we have stayed in. Just perfect.

A lovely bay where this campground is sited. The pool area is very disappointing and uninviting, consequently, no one uses it. Communal areas are cleanish! The reception and office staff are pleasant enough. The sites at the front overlooking the beach are beautiful but can be windy. The best part of this camping ground is definitely the people- the other guests. Many of them are grey nomads who come every year to this park and they are the ones that make it so welcoming and friendly.

If you are planning a trip to the Whitsundays, make sure you visit Bowen and this beautiful hidden gem in Bowen, Horseshoe Bay Resort. Janelle was very friendly throughout our stay and made us feel very welcome. We stayed in one of the caravan sites with ocean view, site was perfect and my Mother in law's cabin was also immaculate and great value for the price we paid with an enormous bathroom. The views were spectacular across the bay and just across the road from the beach near walking trails, great snorkelling and swimming and the restaurants nearby were perfect as we did not feel like cooking. Bathrooms at the resort were very clean and great water pressure. I could not fault this place at all. Such a great family holiday and we will look forward to coming back again and again.

We stayed a couple of nights on a powered van site. Not cement, but roomy. Good location & a nice little Cafe by the Beach. The pool was dirty & not cleaned whilst we were there. The shower was full of dirt & leaves, however a big sign saying "Always shower before entering the pool or Spa'. No sun lounges or sade. Very old & cracked tiles & cement. Better Caravan Parks in Bowen 🙏👍🤔
