22 km from the spectacular turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, the old white sandy Broom’s Cable Beach attracts visitors from Australia and around the world.
Surrounded by sand dunes and ocher red hills, Cable Beach has the convenience of nature-friendly resorts and gardens. There is no better place to enjoy a beach holiday months after the perfect hot weather is over.
This white sand beach allows for many great beach activities. Even during the peak hours between May and October, when there is no congestion, you can always find plenty of bright sand to put your towel on or rent a shelf and umbrella and relax as the water gently ups and downs on the beach. There are huge tides here and you can enjoy a sandy beach by entering the beach at low tide.
If you feel active, you can try swimming, fishing, kayaking, surfing (when the swelling increases), walking on the beach along the flat sand, or relaxing in the sun.
Cable Beach will not disappoint for a spectacular ocean sunset. With colors ranging from purple and gold to fiery red, the sky glows as the sun slowly sinks into the sea, giving picture-perfect photo opportunities.
Cable Beach is famous all over the world for camel riding. Sitting on top of the camels as the train moves rhythmically gives a different perspective on this magical place.
Whether you want to relax or be active on your broom vacation, you can rent chairs, umbrellas, paddleboards, and bicycles at Cable Beach.
This beach reserve is located on Minier Park and along Cable Beach. Three color-coded trails run through this coastal area to the sea, through the bush, and through the hills. This is a beautiful area for morning or evening walks with views along Cable Beach.
The Cable Beach and Cable Beach Amphitheater also hosts a number of events over the years, including the Shinju Matsuri Long Table Dinner, Concert, and Cable Beach Polo.
Lifeguards are on beach duty from May to October, and it is advisable to swim between the flags. Toilet facilities are located near the parking lot and main entrance on West Cable Beach Road. With nothing more than 15 minutes away from Cable Beach in Broom, you can hire a car, catch a taxi, get on a town bus or stop nearby to travel to this popular natural attraction.
4WD vehicles are allowed on the cable coast in the area ‘north of the rocks’. Access is via the traffic slope on West Cable Beach Road, where cars must pass through the rocks and head north along the beach. If you own a rental car, please check the rental terms. Many rental companies do not allow their cars to drive on the beach. If you plan to drive on the beach, it is important to be aware of high tides. Cable Beach turtle nests are built in October and February, during which time there are some restrictions on beach rides. You can learn about turtle nesting times and turtle-friendly beach rides from the Shire of Broom.
