All staff were excellent and very accomodating. Had a great time there fishing with the kids. have already re booked for next year. Good boat ramp which is accesible on approx 3.5 metre tide and it is a great place to launch from to access creeks for Barra fishing or the reefs to go after some pelagics and reef fish.

This place was easily the most relaxing, beautiful and well maintained accommodation we came across while traveling the top end of the NT. Could not pick one single fault and could have stayed for weeks had time allowed! Everything from the beautiful views, great food, and friendly and helpful staff was just perfect. We hired a boat while staying here,... More

We camped here for two nights. Its an amazing spot and the staff are friendly and helpful. On the second day we rented a boat and too it out fishing, which is well worth it if you don't have your own. There's not a whole lot else to do other than sit by the pool, so if your planning a... More

The drive out to crab claw is a bit rough on the dirt road., but well worth it. We stayed in our own camper out the back in the camp grounds. The service was great, the venue was rustic and had fantastic views from the restaurant. We didn't stay in the accommodation but we were advised not to expect 5... More

A very spur of the moment decision finally had us visit Crab Claw Island - as Darwinites, I am ashamed we didn't get there sooner. It was a lovely weekend getaway. Plenty of room for the kids to run around, sandcastles, swimming IN THE POOLS! Would not let them swim in the ocean as there were some pretty devious creatures... More

Great place I enjoyed my stay. Had a beach front room with a great view but on the down side you could hear every word the person is saying in the next room (very annoying when trying to get some sleep) also the food was alright but I was disappointed that when I ordered the Stake for dinner it came...

We arrived by sea on a sailing boat, thinking to anchor around for the night ( it's a 8h sail from Darwin, and have a meal at the restaurant, and say hello to our friend John, the manager. Unfortunately, he was not around.We have been kick out in the most unpleasant manner by the bar tender, because of our little... More

What's fabulous about this place... you have to be there on a high tide, sipping a cold beer on the restaurant deck, watching kids reel in fish from the beach to appreciate how awesome this place is....plus you need a 4wd to access via a courrugated, dirt road. Staff are friendly and welcoming, food is ok, as well as pricing.... More

Very disappointed in our stay. We had a beach front family room and paid the weekend price. Under the beds was filthy and hairs were still in the shower. I would rate it as a beach shack not resort as we had expected. We had families under our house that were from further back rooms that kept us up at... More
