Fodor's Review

Watching the sun sink into the sea on Cable Beach is a nightly ritual for almost all visitors to Broome, who flock to the 22-km (14-mile) stretch of dazzling white sand lapped by turquoise water 7 km (4½ miles) from the center of town. The most popular way to watch the sunset is from the back of a swaying camel, but you can also unpack a picnic at the beachside park, drive a 4WD onto the sand, or sip a cocktail from the beachside bar at Cable Beach Resort. By day it's

a lot less crowded, and north of the vehicle access ramp is a declared nude beach. It's good for swimming, but low tide can mean a long walk across sand to get to the water. Beware of marine stingers (deadly Box and Irukandji jellyfish) in the water from December through to April. Amenities: lifeguard, toilets, parking (free). Best for: swimming, walking, sunset.
