I had the opportunity to be guided here for 2 days in September by Ben from Vision Sports Fishing tours. This is a little piece of paradise. Stunning sunrises and sunsets The location is tranquil with some amazing views. The cabins and accommodation is adequate for this type of location, but well maintained. The amenities are basic but had most... More

What a stunning piece of paradise! The food is awesome (pricey although you need to take into consideration the remote locality so to me it's normal), the rooms are dated however they are practical & clean!! You aren't here to watch TV so don't expect a tv in your room this is a place to enjoy the locals, your family... More

We were told by a friend that because the place is above ground on stilts that we would have no worries with sandflies, rubbish we got eaten alive, even with stacks of repellent. There are new managers here who are trying to get this place in good order but there is much work to be done. The rooms are back... More

Value for money is terrible, bedding clean, rooms disgusting, for $200 a night. Will never go back again. I will advise you not to go! No TV not even a radio!Fans coated dust, staff were lazy, food was good, location is awesome.

I've been talking about visiting this resort for 7 years, to say I was disappointed is an understatement. The location is absolutely beautiful and the meals are quite nice but that's where it ends. The greeting upon arrival to check in was nothing short of hostile, getting served a drink and ordering a meal from the same rude woman was... More

Our party of 6 have just stayed for 2 nights at Crab Claw, each couple had an elevated cabin behind the pool area at $180.00 per night. First impressions are great, lovely spot, great views, peaceful and relaxing. The young staff were delightful but the attention to detail of just the basics was pretty disappointing. The cabin was very tired,... More

Crab Claw Island is located about 130km from Darwin at Bynoe Harbour and is accessible by normal car although there is some gravel road. It is primarily for fishing enthusiasts but we still had a lovely, relaxing time there. There is a campsite and some basic, elevated cabins set amongst palm trees and overlooking one of the pools. Or you... More

If you're staying some time in the Top End, and need a place to completely rest and chill out, then Crab Craw Island is worth a visit. It's not an island at all but was known as Brown Point until about 30 years ago when a small resort was first established on the southern side of the upper reaches of... More

We sailed to Crab Claw for June long weekend and my wife towed the camper around. Camp ground was tidy, cheaply priced with adequate size sites. The staff were incredibly friendly and courteous and the food was great. The restaurant was at capacity the entire weekend and the staff coped well under load. All in all a great weekend.
