This was our 3rd stay at Punsand bay, we have never been dissapointed yet. Staff has always been excellent. Position is fantastic, great spot to kick off to all the things to do on far north Cape York. The camp grounds are very good considering where you are, a fantastic treat after free camping for a couple of weeks. Food and drinks at the Corrugation bar are reasonable in price and quality. The beer garden area around the pool and beachfront is second to none. The under cover area at the bar is great as well. We'll be back.
This is the beat place to stay when visiting the Tip. Despite the 30 min drive into Bamaga & Seisea, Punsand Bay is set among beach dunes, offers a range of accommodation and has good facilities despite its very remote location. Combined with very friendly and helpful staff - this spot has a lovely relaxed feel. We had a powered site with water views despite being on the third row back from the beach. The SE wind was pretty strong so the extra protection was welcome. They have a lovely bar area and small pool for swimming. We were keen to eat at the bar/restaurant but the menu included yet another selection of deep fried rubbish - which doesn’t appeal to us at all. They do have wood fired pizzas on select evenings which are pretty popular with NPA locals. The area is good access to Pajinka (the Tip) and Somerset as well as the spectacular rainforest complete with unique tropical birds, if you are patient. Spotlighting at night around the campground rewarded us with a Papuan Frogmouth hunting crabs on the beach and a few Burtons (legless) Lizards. …
We stayed at Punsand bay at the camp grounds that has beach front bungalows (that we stayed in) and loved it. In the remotest, most northern top of Australia this place has everything for everyone from camping, glamming and air conditioned bungalows. The facilities are great and the service and staff are really incredible and to top it off the Chef Paul present fabulous meals everyday. We so loved it and will definitely be going back😃
This was hard the scenery was absolutely beautiful but we booked the beach huts and it was dear $238 a day and what do you get two single beds which one broke when I sat on it no tv no fridge no tea or coffee but you can go to the bar and wait in turn to be served and then get your free tea or coffee. We were there at a weekend and don’t plan to get a early night as all the revelers want to party, on the bright side the staff and the new chefs were great and friendly and the food was good, there is lots of little places you can drive to As well like the cape it’s a bit of a hike lots of steps and very rocky and uneven
We have just returned from a trip to the cape and used Punsand as our base. Perfect. The unpowered beachside camps are the best and there is ample space between camps. Facilities are clean and the staff lovely. We enjoyed sitting around the pool listening to the music having a cold beer. Will be a returning traveller for sure
