Western Australian beaches – Cable Beach

Western Australian beaches – Cable Beach

This week it is going to be SCORCHING here in Western Australia! Now I know we generally love our weather here in the west but there are limits – the 40 degree forecast for Perth for the next few days is pushing it a bit far. Personally, I’ll be hiding in the air conditioning till it all goes away but for those who revel in the heat and the sun and the surf it’s perfect beach weather. Continuing my series on Western Australian beaches (see my first post on Burns Beach here) I’d like to introduce you to Cable Beach in Broome. Today, on Australia Day, I wanted to show you all one of the most iconic beaches in the world – and when you think of Cable Beach you immediately think sunsets and camels. Even visitors who claim not to do ‘touristy’ things can’t help themselves when it comes to Cable Beach. You simply have to sit on the beach, preferably with a champagne in hand, and watch the sunset and you have to take a ride on the famous camels of Cable beach. When I was there a few years ago I took a camel ride with Red Sun Camels and had an amazing evening, sitting up high, watching the sun set.

Western Australian Beaches – Burns Beach

I’m lucky that I live close to some of the most stunning beaches in the world. Western Australia has over 20,000 kms of coastline and the stunning Western Australian beaches provide us locals and the visitors to our state with the opportunity to swim, surf, snorkel, fish, sail, canoe, kayak, surfski, parasail, paraglide and picnic to our hearts content. We can play beach cricket and beach volleyball, fossick in rock pools, make sandcastles, swim with dolphins and whales and sip wine as we watch some of the most incredible sunsets you’ll find anywhere. Unfortunately when you live so close to this natural beauty you tend to forget what’s on your doorstep. Over the next few weeks I thought I’d spend a little time reminding the locals what they have and showing the rest of you in other parts of the world exactly what you’re missing. I’m starting in the northern suburbs of Perth with a visit to Burns beach.     Share this:FacebookTwitterEmailPrintLinkedInGooglePinterestLike this:Like...
