Mindil Beach is one of Darwin's premier beaches. Its just a pity swimming is an issue with stingers and crocodiles. However a walk along this lovely beach will leave you feeling calm and relaxed. Sunset is always a wonderful time of day especially if there is no cloud cover. Watching the sun go down when the markets are on is... More

A lovely wide beach looking toward the islands. At sunset you can capture fantastic shots as the sun and clouds change colour. Markets weren't on at the time but everyone in town highly recommended them.

Australia has gone and done it again - it's made something else scary! Not only do you have to worry about Great Whites popping up when you're out for a paddle, but now you have to beware of laying on the beach! In case you're blissfully unaware, like I was, crocodiles frequent the water up here... And they have been... More

Beautiful Beach, especially at sunset. Great to visit during the dry season when the markets are on. Grab a bite and sit on the beach and watch the sunset.

THIS IS A MUST SEE BEACH Go there for sunset and you will get the best pictures of your whole trip to Darwin. The beach will be crowded at this time with hundreds of people just siting out watching the sunset. I would recommend you go on a Thursday night as there is a market situated right beside the beach... More

Lovely beach with a very pretty view at sunset. Very hot during the day but much more pleasant later in the day/evening.

Darwin has stunning sunsets and Mindil is a beautiful place to watch the sun set. The area of the beach is dirty and homeless do live there so once it is dark be careful

Thanks to all the other reviews, we came here to watch the sun set and it was lovely! Very good for photos. The markets were also very good and we had some good snacks as well.
