A lovely safe spot to swim for kids and also adults. You have to walk out quite a way when it's low tide. The staircase markets are held here with good food and a great view of the staircase to the moon

This beach has a little bit of everything - azure skies, turquoise water and red rocks. There are markets here (check dates) and it's close enough to the museum to combine visits.

There is a lovely cafe right on town beach that serve meals and drinks. You can sit outside to eat right above beach and get an amazing view of the sea. A regular place I enjoy a coffee when I visit Broome.

The ocean's colours are brilliant. So tropical looking. There is good parking, toilets, free BBQ and a little cafe.
