There are no high-rise buildings at Cable Beach or in Broome.
Cable Beach is a 22 kilometres (14 mi) stretch of beach near Broome, Western Australia. Cable Beach was named after the telegraph cable laid between Broome and Java in 1889.
Last year, on or about 25 Feb. 2014, a 12-foot (approx. 4 metre) long saltwater crocodile caused a brief but excited shutdown of this beach to all public swimming.
Broome is an isolated town, many people drive onto the beach taking a bottle of wine, food, table and chairs and have their evening meal on the beach in the northern part of the beach.
There are cricket games, footballs teams, all kinds of activities some late afternoons where by people entertain themselves.
There are so many people that come each evening to see the sunset.
The first two photos is where people who don't have a vehicle come to lay on the beach.
There is a large carpark plus restaurants, the surf club, lots of green grass with manicured lawn along a small area before heading down the steps to the beach.
This is the northern area where you can get on a camel and off you go at sunset. I did hear that the camels do go other times in the day as well.
Me cooling off. Yes, I have my handbag with me, well can't leave it ashore.
The above photo gives you the idea of an afternoon on the sand.
