Cable Beach is a great place to be. It doesn't matter whether you choose to go on a came ride along the beach, or just sit with a drink and some nibbles to watch the sunset. There are not too many places on earth that I can think of where I would rather be !!!

Being able to walk for miles along the beach, or drive as far as you want 'north of the rocks' is fantastic. Nothing better than getting the family in the 4x4 and driving along a few km's, setting up and having a bbq while watching the sunset and camels walk by.

Amazing beach! At low tide, wide expanses of hard sand on which to walk, ride a bike or drive a 4 WD. Many rock pools for children to explore. Look out for the beautiful patterns made on the sand by tiny burrowing crabs.

Cable Beach, Broome, is the epitome of what you can do with a beach. You can drive on it, relax on it, walk along it, launch and retrieve boats, fish from it or swim or surf from it. It's long enough so you can find a spot to be by yourself, or if you seek company, there will be someone... More

With its Turquoise Waters and expansive pristine wide beach, this is the place to be on that warm day. Lounging on a rented chair under a beach umbrella or just lying on the soft sand further up the beach. Several days the water had quite a bit of small waves that churned up the sand so it was hard to... More

Cable beach is a very wide, beautiful white beach. Rent a 4x4 and drive on Cable beach. Since it is so wide, the most fun way is to drive on the beach and set yourself up right by the water. Drop by a supermarket beforehand for supplies and enjoy a picknic by the water while seeing the most amazing sunset.... More

This is free, there is ample parking, and a happy vibe. Great thing to do at least once. Take a picnic and enjoy the sun sinking into the Indian Ocean. Now you see it, now you don't. Sunset here is a must.

Parked on the beach and watched the sunset from the back of the car. Also had a swim earlier in the day. Crystal clear water and great view! Great beach to visit! Very romantic spot!
