Having a peninsula position means that there is water on both sides of the town and various beaches to visit, each with its own unique personality.

The most well-known beach is Cable Beach, with its white sands luring people to rest during the day and take in the beautiful Indian Ocean sunsets throughout the evening. In addition to the picture-perfect blue seas of Town Beach, it’s also the ideal location to take a trip up The Staircase to the Moon.

Almost every one of Broome’s beaches is within a ten-minute drive of the city center. When on vacation in Broome, keep an eye on the tide patterns to determine the optimum time to visit the beaches.

The Best Places To Snorkel Near Broome

We have no idea about you, but sometimes it seems like all we do is eat, drink, sleep, and repeat the cycle again and again. With so many exciting new pubs, restaurants, and cafés popping up all around Broome, we’ve become used to all of our social excursions incorporating food and drink as a rule. So it’s time to shake things up a little. Let’s make some of our social gatherings more active and outdoors-based. If you’re looking for something different to do this weekend, why not go snorkeling? We thought so.

Here are the best snorkeling spots in Broome for an exhilarating snorkeling adventure.

Clerke Reef

Snorkeling is possible in almost any body of water, but snorkelers are more likely to be found in locations where the water is warm, waves are small and there is something particularly interesting to see near the surface such as a reef or a shipwreck.[31] Generally shallow reefs ranging from 1 to 4 meters (3 to 13 ft) are favored by snorkelers. Enough water cover to swim over the top without kicking the bottom is needed, but shallow structure can be approached from the sides. Deeper reefs can also be explored, but repeated breath-holding to dive to those depths limits the number of practitioners, and raises the bar on the required fitness and skill level. Risk increases with increased depth and duration of the breath-hold excursions from the surface.

The Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon features swim throughs and small caves to explore. Snorkel through the Aquarium in the interior of the lagoon. Snorkellers and divers can experience moving below the surface at 6 knots viewing coral formations, schools of tropical fish and reef sharks as you travel towards the outer reef system.

The Rowley Shoals is a group of three atoll-like coral reefs south of the Timor Sea, about 260 km (160 mi) west of Broome on the northwestern Australian coast, centered on 17°20′S 119°20′E, on the edge of one of the widest continental shelves in the world. Each atoll covers an area of around 80 to 90 km2 (31 to 35 sq mi) within the rim of the reef, including the lagoons, while the land areas are negligible. They belong to Western Australia. They all rise steeply from the surrounding ocean floor. To the northeast lie the Scott and Seringapatam Reefs which are located on the same undersea platform.
