Sails on Horseshoe

13–15 Pacific Dr., opposite beach, Magnetic Island, Queensland, 4819, Australia

Sails' one-bedroom beachside studio apartments, two-bedroom villas (one disability-friendly), and dual-level town houses have worn-in, tropically themed furnishings, tiled floors, TVs with digital channels, Wi-Fi (for a fee), air-conditioning, balconies, and equipped kitchens and laundries.
