Great beach. Lounges and beach chairs under umbrellas available to hire for very reasonable prices, surf life savers patrol the beach. You can walk forever, the water temp is divine and late in the afternoon you can return and listen to music, have a drink and watch the sunset. Perfect

Beautiful, wide beach, in a stunning part of Australia. The best part is probably watching the sunsets whilst enjoying a drink at the Cable Beach Resort!!

Honestly it's probably considered one of the best beaches in the world for a reason. It can get very busy with 4WDs, but so long as you don't walk in their way, you'll be fine. After all, you have miles of beach to enjoy!

A beautiful beach to walk in the morning, swim during the day or drive your four wheel drive down, park pull out the chairs and watch the most beautiful sunsets Australia had to offer.

Cable Beach is famous for its spectacular sun sets and the camel trains that give people a ride (provided you are under a100kg) one of our group was embarrassed as she was told that even though she booked she was too fat for a ride. A better option is to pre purchase a bottle of wine or a soft drink... More

If you look at the beach itself, is it the best beach in the world? Certainly not. The sand isn't overly impressive, nor is the water breathtaking blue like Turquoise Bay or Coral Beach. In the wet season you're told to stay out of the water because of deadly jellyfish and in the dry season the water gets a slight... More

No matter what time of day you decide to visit Cable Beach, it is a truly incredible and exciting experience. Early mornings offer an opportunity for... More

Its all happening here on Cable Beach. Camel rides, 4x4ing, fishing, nudism.........We spent a few days on here, just relaxing in the sun, watching the sunsets, 4x4ing etc.The occasional crocodile hampers the swimming and the stingers are a problem in the wet season. So its not really a beach where you swim safely. Great for sun baking though and a... More

Today we walked the length and back of this white sandy beach with cool,clear water. Some intrepid surfers made the most of tiny waves. Blue skies and lots of travellers in the car park. There are umbrellas and chairs for hirer a restaurant and take away. Part of the beach has a lifeguard patrol and I am told the crocs... More
