About Us

about_us02Crab Claw Island is a magnificent part of the Northern Territory located on the Cox Peninsula, just 135km southwest of Darwin by road or 35km by air. Truly unique, it is an island accessible by road except on extreme high tides. Crab Claw Island is home to Crab Claw Island Resort – a complex of elevated cabins overlooking a white sandy beach connected by walkways through the trees, refreshing swimming pools, an open air restaurant and bar with views across the harbour, shady camp sites, private boat ramp to access the fabulous fishing, all surrounded by wildlife and pristine natural beauty.

Crab Claw caters for those who love the outdoors. You can go bushwalking around the island, hunt for monster mud crabs, go for a dip in one of the two refreshing pools or – when in season – watch the turtles lay their eggs on a nearby beach. However, Crab Claw’s main attraction has got to be fishing. The island is a fishermen’s dream. A popular way to spend the day is to fish until dusk, and then eat your catch. With over 30 species of fish in the harbour, including Barramundi and crab, you’re spoilt for choice when baiting dinner.

The Vision

Crab Claw Island Resort is in the business of creating memories, not selling beds or beer or meals or fishing bait but creating a space in people’s lives that they can look back on in years to come and smile, glad that they took the time to Escape, Enjoy, Experience…

This is all about providing a consistent, high quality, service experience for our visitors. It starts with the way our team answers your phone call or e-mail, follows through your booking experience, to the facilities, the grounds, the cheeriness of the service in the restaurant and bar, the quality and presentation of the meals, the comfort of our beds, cleanliness of our rooms and does not end until we wish you well as you rejoin your normal lives.
