Cable Beach Tours and Activities

star-4.5
39 Reviews
Cable Beach
Cable Beach encompasses 14 miles (22 kilometers) of unspoiled white sand and turquoise waters. The beach is almost perfectly flat and therefore its calm waters are ideal for swimming. From the shore, you can see the occasional pearling boat—an industry that supported Broome before it was discovered by travelers.

The Basics
Cable Beach is long and divided into several sections. The clothing-optional area lies north of the rocks and is also a popular spot for sunset watching in the evenings. Further south, Minyirr Park offers numerous walking trails through its red sand dunes. 

One of the most popular activities on Cable Beach is a sunset camel ride, though it’s also possible to see the famed beach from above on a scenic helicopter flight. Most sightseeing tours of Broome combine a stop at the beach with local favorites such as Broome Chinatown and Gantheaume Point. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • There are a variety of restaurants and a couple of general stores. 
  • Bathrooms, showers, and changing facilities can be found near the parking lot.
  • Don’t forget to bring a towel, change of clothes, and sun protection. 
How to Get There
It is easy to reach Cable Beach by car—there’s a good paved road right to the car park. The Broome Bus also stops at the popular beach.

When to Get There
The beach is rarely crowded, even during the peak tourist season of May to October when lifeguards are on duty. Visit at low tide for more space to spread out. Keep an eye out for nesting sea turtles on the beach between October and February.

Camels in Australia
One of the most enduring images of Cable Beach is of a line of camels marching across the wet sand at sunset. These camels are not native to Australia; some 20,000 of them were brought over from the Middle East in the 1800s to help facilitate cross-country travel. Once trains and roads became prominent, the camels were largely set free and today about a million of them roam the Australian Outback.

Practical Info

It is easy to reach Cable Beach by car, there is a good paved road right to the car park. The Broome Bus also has a stop at Cable Beach and no doubt there will be a stop nearby your hotel in this tiny town.
