There’s a reason why the Cable Beach tops the list of places to see in Broome. Rightly dubbed as Western Australia’s most famous landmark, Cable Beach is about 7 kms from the city centre, easily accessible by bus. The 22 kms long beach is a sight to truly marvel at, long stretches of white sand outlined with turquoise water; especially when the sun is setting. Not so crowded during the day, by dusk it looks like the entire city has flocked to the beach with their cars and picnic meals ready to witness the sun setting. Once you see it for yourself, you’ll know they’re justified in doing so.
Cable beach is good for swimming but be careful of stingers from December-April. You don’t have to worry about crocodiles since they aren’t particularly fond of surfing through the waves. Just a little ahead of the vehicle access ramp is a declared nude beach.
