Cable Beach, Broome

(4.6/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
Come see one of Australia's most beautiful stretches of sand at Cable Beach. Taking its name from the undersea telegraph cable that stretches from here to Java, the wide beach offers 22.5 km (14 mi) of white sand that tides clean on a daily basis. Spend the day relaxing beneath the tropical sun and ride a camel at sunset along the perfectly flat beach. You can rent an umbrella for shade. Be careful of box jellyfish if you visit from November through March. Use our Broome trip itinerary builder to add Cable Beach and other attractions to your Broome vacation plans.

  • Had dinner at Sunsets, very nice food, a lil pricey. Was disappointed at not seeing the camels on the beach 
  • If I have it right, they named this for a cable that helped with communication for WWII. A really cool place and if you have made it to Broome you have to go to the beach! 
  • A beautiful the morning empty Beach and an uplifting experience after the Outbackdurchquerung in the water jump and to see the sea again.
