Cable Beach is definitely worth a visit if you love the beach. There is plenty of room on this amazingly long beach. Even in mid November we were able to enjoy the beautiful weather and swim in the crystal clear, warm water. The sunsets are amazing and different each day. Well worth a visit any time of the day.

I had wanted to travel to Broome for a long time and I wasn't disappointed. I'm always a little scared of swimming in the ocean but the soft sand and clear water was amazing. There were no rough bits in the sand or seaweed floating and while swimming the sand under foot was soooo soft. Be sensible and observe and... More

The sunset, the camels coming up from the beach at the end of the day and having a pizza at the sunset bar it is just so lovely.

One of the best sunsets in the world. Worth the hours driving though west australia. Bring some food and drinks and spend the last hours of the day. Swimming only at certain time of the year due to jellyfishes.

Being from Darwin, it was so nice to get into the salt water with less risk of crocs / stingers. The waves were tons of fun and the water was beautifully warm and soothing. The long white sand beach was so nice at sunset. Zanders is close and the camel rides are really classic Broome tourism. The novelty might wear... More

Everyone told me how busy this beach is but I believe November is kind of out of season and it was really not that busy. Its a massive clean beautiful beach and the colour of the water is an amazing blue/aqua and the sunset is not to be missed. You can get great photos also when the camel rides are... More

As in a story by Author and Tory Geoffrey Archer; when the waiter inquired was the diners preference for undercooked or cooked Duck; Diner had the ordacity to choose cooked. Waiter, sneered, unimpressed. That... More

Cable beach is simply breathtaking! Coming from Darwin the water was amazingly blue and inviting. The waves were big enough to enjoy and have some laughs with family and friends.
