Cable beach is the most beautiful blue and there is a business on the beach that hires out deck chairs and umbrellas by the hour at very modest prices. Then there is a sunset like no other at the end of each day, what more could you ask for.

Beautiful, long, white sandy beach which is fantastic to walk along. The climate is always tropical so most of the time over a year it hardly gets below 30 degrees Celsius or 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Sunsets are absolutely magnificent. Recommend the sunset Camel treks along the beach.

The sunsets over Cable Beach are well worth watching. We were amazed at the length of the beach and the amount of four wheel drives.

The sunsets were absolutely stunning and the beach is something else. Just about every body in the town is on the beach to witness the sunsets.

I went here back in 2012 with a group of friends. We did the whole tourist thing of riding camels along the beach which was fun, I can see the attraction to it. However as for the beach itself I was disappointed. It's such a huge tourist destination I expected more. It wasn't as pretty as other beaches around Australia... More

Cable Beach is just like any other 4WD beach in Aus, with the added benefit that it would be nice and hot all year round. I found it a great palce to just sit and relax and take it all in. The sunset wasn't as good as I expected. I think people have talked up Cable Beach so much, that... More

A friend confronted a German man taking photo's of his teenage daughter. He found 100's of photos that were not happy snaps shall we say. The card was destroy & he was hunted from the... More

It had a good atmosphere watching the sunsets along with other people sitting on the beach. I'd suggest doing the sunset camel rides. I didn't do it personally but wished I did, looked like a great experience! Will definitely be doing it next time I come back. Try and get there early as it is hard to find parking before... More
