Dolphin Sands peninsula is located on Tasmania's east coast. Situated along 9 Mile beach, this is a powered site with walking access to the local beach. Our campsite is perfect for swimming, water sport activities and fishing. There are no amenities so please ensure you are fully self sufficient with a camping toilet and shower. Dogs off leashes welcome, and there is a dedicated firepit for your enjoyment.
The campsite is just a few minutes' drive from the township of Swansea, Devils Corner Vineyard and the Melshell Oyster Shack.
There are beach access tracks at each end of Dolphin Sands Road that you can drive to, or if you are up for a walk there is a beach access track at the "80k/h" sign, just before you enter the property - use this path to walk approx 200m to the beach.

If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
we are sadly requesting a refund for a combination of reasons.
* We where advised it would be a powered site - no electrician. We adv we were ok without till second day but no electrician then either.
We only continued the booking without power first day as we had the back up of campfire planned meals etc.
* There was no fire pit as in description.
* campfire allowed as told in the description.
* host personally put a fire ban in place on our second day meaning we where unable to use nearly all of our food- now wasted as we also couldn’t power our Waco 😢 - did not have the power fixed and took away options for cooking for us.
* The entire site is also covered in LARGE thistles. It took us well over and hour in the hot sun to remove just some for the safety of our children. My daughter still received several nasty pricks.
*x3 very large, dangerous, rusty, sharp building rebar sheets laying all over the site. Hurt my back as we had to move to the sides for everyone’s safety.
All in all it was pretty disappointing.
We are requesting a refund as description is false. We spent out second night cold, hungry and out of pocket.
We have also graciously left the site in much better condition than when arrived from collection of wood with dangerous nails and screws sticking out of them, rubbish collection and building debris everywhere and the 100s of thistles.
The site is in a good location with a lovely outlook. It has a number of thistles that have popped up across the previously cleared site, so wear long pants to not get spiked. We had an issue with access to the power distribution board, as it had fallen off the pole it was connected to, but I am sure this would be fixed soon by the host.
Loved the peace and quiet - with views of the ocean in the distance. Fine for campers who are just parking on the gravel driveway and need access to power from the building site. No room to turn a vehicle, so need to reverse up the narrow gravel driveway which was a bit tricky with a camper trailer. Oysters from the oyster shack just down the road are exceptional!
