Cable Beach - Broome
Cable Beach is the first thing visitors to Broome rush out to see. The 22‑kilometre ribbon of fine white sand, lapped by calm, gleaming, blue waters is refreshing just to look at. The beach was named in honour of the telegraph cable laid between Broome and Java in 1889, linking Australia with Asia, Europe and England. Near the surf club at the northern end of the beach you can hire a colourful beach umbrella and settle in for the day. Other than soaking up the sun, another iconic Cable Beach experience is a camel ride in the fading light of the day. Book at the Broome visitor centre.
