This beach is worth a walk from the 2WD car park (4 kms) or you can drive the very steep track down and it is very steep. The boardwalk from the 4WD car park is wonderful, with interesting palms, Robber Crabs and just a tranquil...More

To get to Dolly Beach, it’s a bumpy ride down the 4WD track and then a 2km walk through the rainforest. Along the way, you’ll see lots of red, blue and robber crabs, and there weren’t too many mosquitoes out today. It is a hot...More

Nice beach with crabs easily seen. Beach is quite rocks and waves can be strong, so not great for swimming. Unfortunately, there is plenty of litter, which spoils the beach appeal. Can find edible coconuts too.

Leaving Greta Beach, the trail to Dolly Beach narrows, then when I went had trees across it, spiders webs to clear...gives you the feeling it isn't mobbed with visitors. Indeed I didn't see another person all walk as you get a beach with palm trees,...More

The views are beautiful, and the walk to get there is littered with many crabs of all varieties. Robber crabs galore in the palm trees on Dolly. It is a shame that lots of rubbish washes up here and the parks and wildlife ask if...More

Even though its 30 or so minutes from Settlement by 4WD and then a 45 minute walk on an amazing board walk, it's worth the effort. The last little descent onto the beach is a sight, looking out over the white sandy bay, coconut trees...More
