Cable Beach is a beautiful and dramatic beach in the Torndirrrup National Park, adjacent to The Gap and Natural Bridge.
With crisp, turquoise waters, white sands and a host of granite outcrops, Cable Beach is attractive and pleasure to visit.
However, being exposed to the full force of the Southern Ocean, it carries the risk of frequent and unpredictable king waves. This makes Cable Beach unsuitable for swimming.
Access to the beach is via Gap Road, with a short turn off to a small car park. From there a path and stairway lead towards the beach. You will need to navigate between granite boulders to reach the beach proper.
Cable Beach is an excellent location for scenic walks
Cable Beach is an excellent location for scenic walks, with multi-coloured bush, bright, white sands and interesting rock formations.
The pounding surf, rocks and shallow reef may make swimming too dangerous, but entices a wide variety of fish to the area. Expect to catch salmon, skippy, herring, whiting, groper, queenie and shark, depending on the season.
Take care when visiting the area and enjoy the view.
