Strolling through the market on the beautiful beach at Horseshoe Bay, taking in the sun, ocean breeze, and sounds of people browsing the market filling my ears as I search for a souvenir of my time in Townsville.
Walking along finding interesting displays of handcrafted jewellry, sun catches and sarongs with the wafting smell of local food in the air. Taking my time, enjoying the moment and with the additional pleasure of a massage bed set up offering Swiss massages how could one refuse, shoulder muscles being kneaded with sand and salt in the air, perfect.
You will leave Magnetic Island relaxed, calm and rejuvenated.
