Beaches Loop Road
It is a small, narrow, sandy four wheel drive track to say the least.
And it is the kind of track where it is smart to go with another vehicle because it is easy to get bogged in those soft sands.
It starts at the Somerset ruins, where a small track goes east.
It is about 2km to the beach, where you turn left if you want to do a small side track to Fly Point - which is worth it for the views, and there is also the Old Jardine Airstrip.

After Fly Point you can turn back onto the Beaches Loop Road, and continue along the beach to Vallack Point ...

.. and continue to Nanthau Beach (7km from Fly Point), in the southern end of which the track turns inland. You can also continue along the next beach - Narau Beach - to Chandagoo Point and then come back here.

Back in the southern end of Nanthau Beach, the track continues inland between two lakes - Lake Wieheura and Lake Bronto to the Somerset Road, where turning right takes you back to Somerset and turning left takes you back towards Lockerbie and Bamaga.
