Cable Beach

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.
