Cable Beach, Broome

With stunning turquoise water and 22 kilometres of pristine white sand, Broome’s Cable Beach is renowned as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. With months on end of perfect warm weather there is no better place to enjoy a beach holiday.

Uncrowded even in peak season between May and October, you can always find a quiet stretch of sparkling sand to lay down your towel or hire a deckchair and umbrella, and be lulled into relaxation as the azure waters gently lap the shoreline.  Broome has huge tidal movements and visiting the beach at low tide will provide you with a large expanse of sandy beach to enjoy.

If you are feeling active, try your hand at fishing, kayaking, step aboard a Pearl Lugger, or hunt for seashells as you take a leisurely stroll along Cable Beach. There are a wide range of tours that will help you experience all that Cable Beach and Broome has to offer.

Cable Beach is famous the world over for its iconic camel rides.  Sitting high, astride a camel while it walks rhythmically in time with the camel train, gives you a different perspective of this magical location.  Check out Broome tours for more information.
