We stayed in a family safari tent for two nights as part of a Kimberly a wild camping tour. The tents were exceptionally comfortable with an en suite and a frig. There was a balcony area offering beautiful views. The beds were firm and we had quality sleep. You do need a torch at night as tents are some distance away from restaurant and it is very dark. We only used the restaurant for breakfast one morning when we were too late for the camp breakfast on offer and for coffee. They were fine. I would take any snack food with you and any alcohol you might want as that is not available in the community. There was a range of accommodation on offer but I can not comment

Room Tip: Unless you like to rough it go for the family safari tent. Other than that you need to use te communal toilet and shower which would be difficult at night.

Drove in from Broome, roads weren't too bad. Says about 3h40min travel time, we did it in 2h30min easy.

Stayed at unpowered campsite for a couple of days, initially opted for the beach shelter but must admit, am happier with the campground as the wind were very strong during our stay, the wind-propelled sand kinda hurts.

We got spot #4, and we are very, very happy with it. Got a good view of the western beach which has amazing sunsets, the camp space seems to be bigger than the rest, and a barbeque area right next to us. Amenities are also very close by. At night, the stars are incredible.

Given the level of seclusion this place is, amenities are satisfactory. Has hot shower, kitchen has fridge facilities, gas burners and laundry has some amount of cloth line space. Did not try the restaurant properly (due to bad reviews), but we did try the bush butler 'fish of the day', not bad. Pricey tho, as expected. Staff members however are very friendly and helpful, easy to interact with.

Due to the wind, we weren't able to do the fishing or snorkling activities. But we did manage to do the tagalong tour, which was quite fun. Mud crab catching is great, much recommended if hadn't done before. There is an air compressor ready for 4WD on the beach.

Overall, one of the highlights of our tour in the Kimberley. Worth giving it a try.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The safari tent was great, apart from the shower which takes about 30mins to adjust for correct temperature.
The restaurant is poorly managed, we waited 45 mins for a coffee. The food is ordinary and overpriced. The staff are sombre, with no smiles or welcomes. I couldn't cut the lamb shank as it was like leather. The staff only open the restaurant at 8am as they said they don't want to get up earlier.
There's a much better cafe a few kms down the road with great service.

We (wife + 2 kids) camped for 4 nights. This is a magic location with many activity options. We loved the Cygnet Bay pearl farm and we also did a tag-along 4wd tour with Brian Lee which was absolutely fantastic. The beaches and sunsets are something we'll never forget. If I have to say one negative thing it would be that the service at the restaurant caught us a little off guard in that they refused to accommodate us as we did not make a booking before 4pm. The tour we did was delayed a little getting back due to one car repeatedly getting bogged. We just thought they could have been a little more flexible.

We left our van behind, packed up a hike tent etc and spent 2 nights (we couldn't get any longer) in a beach shelter. It was wonderful! Our shelter was right on the beach great for sunset, sunrise, swimming, walking on the beach. We felt like we were on our own island at night. Third night in a cabin was ok, no view just a place to sleep. We will be back for a longer stay in a shelter!
