Cable beach is a beautiful expanse of beach and I definitely recommend a wander up and down. We sat on top of one of the dunes to enjoy the sunset one evening and then spent the evening chatting with another young couple we met on the beach. A walk to the lighthouse is relaxing and enjoyable, although it will take... More

Superb Scenery, truly iconic Australia.... The 4WD adventure driving along Cable Beach,Broome is just Wow! The white beach sand, the emerald waters as warm as a bath and the turquoise skies.... What more would you want to experience Down Under. I absolutely recommend hiring a 4WD and just Go!!!!!

Cable beach is the perfect escape to do nothing. That is if it's not raining, then not so good. Still you take the good with the not so good.

This beach goes for miles. The waves make their own statement as do the rocks and shells along water's edge. In the late afternoon camels parade to their pick up destination where, for a fee, you can ride one along the water and watch an incredible sunset. Lots of fun
