About Us

Escape, Enjoy, Experience…

The resort is located in a unique part of the Northern Territory on the Cox Peninsula. Tucked away on its own private shore, approximately 90 minutes’ drive from Darwin or 20 minutes by air (private charter). When the tide is extremely high and over seven metres, it truly becomes an island and is inaccessible for a few hours.

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.
