What Our Customers Are Saying
Best Oysters! *****
We had such a great time here, well worth the small detour! The best oysters we had in Tasmania, the staff were great and it's all situated in a great spot with a view. I wish I tried the smoked oysters! Date of experience: May 2019
Love oysters? This is unmissable. *****
Buy a bottle of local Reisling. Go to this oyster place for lunch. That's food heaven, right there. Do it. Date of experience: May 2019
Oysters to die for *****

The Oyster Lovers Ultimate Experience
A secret place worth sharing
A Sand peninsular split with the Swan River on its north side and Great Oyster Bay on the South side. Dolphin Sands is a paradise for bird lovers, fishing enthusiasts, shell collectors and beach lovers. The jetty and boat ramp are popular at Yellow Sandbanks when pelicans come in to feed from local fisherman. The river mouth is popular for surfers when the swell is good. The nine miles of golden sand is popular all year round for wandering amongst drift wood and shells. Boat charters are available from Yellow Sandbanks and Bike Hire is available from Swansea. There are many Air BnB options to stay at Dolphin Sands and self contained camping is permitted.
