Perfect view and sunsets. Make sure you wait around for a further 30 mins after sundown to experience the array of colours.

“Great place to unwind”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2014

Cable Beach is a lovely long beach ideal for swimming (at the right time of year), relaxing and walking. We first visited in September 2013 and our morning swims in the warm tropical water were sublime. This time around in March 2014 the sunsets against the wet season skies were quite a spectacle.

It’s only a short walk to the main (northern) part of the beach from most accommodation places at Cable Beach. If you have a car, the southern part is a great spot to enjoy the turquoise waters against the back drop of the red cliffs around Gantheaume Point.

The main part of the beach does get busy late in the afternoon with the camel rides and 4wders but there’s lots of space to get away from it all.

And it’s extra special to watch the full moon set over the ocean at dawn.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

It's just a big flat beach, I really don't get why people like it so much? There are far prettier beaches allover WA, including just kilometres down the road from this one.

Sure it has its charms like the camel parade and the occasional croc on the beach.

Once you've seen one sunset here, tick...
